A-Dressing The Problem

| Detroit, MI, USA | Grandparents

(I have been saving for a prom dress I really want for months. I finally have enough. I go to order it, and it’s sold out. I burst into tears. I am not religious, whilst my grandmother is Catholic.)

Grandma: “Now, honey, don’t worry about that dress!”

Me: “But..but I wanted that one! I’ve worked for months!”

Grandma: “It’ll be back in stock tomorrow, don’t you worry!”

Me: “It’s sold out, though!”

Grandma: “It’ll be back.”

(The next morning…)

Me: “Grandma! It’s back!”

Grandma: “I told you. I prayed last night and said, ‘Mary, you know how women are about their dresses’. And look. Mary knows.”
