And this week I have chosen prompt 5.) Share something mean someone said to you once, why has it stuck with you after all these years.
My story goes back six and a half years, back to when I was a Miss rather than a Mrs and I was looking for the ultimate outfit... My wedding dress.
There is a dress shop which I had to drive past three or four times a week and I had always vowed that I would start my search there.
Now I know I am not built like Keira Knightley but then neither am I a doppelgänger of Brock Lesner...
But when I walked into that shop with one of my bridesmaids and smilingly said that I would like to look at wedding dresses the woman looked at me, pursed her lips in disgust and said...
"Hmm, you're broad."
What???? That is how you great customers, young woman excited and blooming with the promise of a magical day????
We were so flabbergasted that we merely followed her into the changing room where she started to bring dresses that she figured would fit my horrific frame.
The dresses were a mixture of ugly and pretty, frilly and sleek and when trying on one of the more fitted versions the idiot woman turned to me in complete surprise and said...
"Oh, you dooooo have a waist!"
How utterly utterly mean!!
Needless to say I did not buy a dress from that shop but did so from a lovely woman in another village who made me feel like I was special, made me feel like a bride!
And see... I don't look that hideous do I?
