Congratulations Lucy and Brad.
It was my sister's engagement party yesterday and on Friday I was still wondering what to wear. I didn't have much in my wardrobe so I hit the shops in the faint hope of finding something. And I did find something - two new pairs of running shorts. Oops!! How typical!
I came home and posted this on Facebook -
"I really did intend to shop for a dress for Lucy and Brad's engagement party - so how come I ended up coming home with two pairs of running shorts?!"
And I got this in reply from Lucy -
"ha ha... cause they are easier to buy! Just wear them... I didn't mention dress code :)"
But I think that made her worried that I might just actually turn up in running shorts so that afternoon I got a text from her. She and my other sister were in Target and had picked out some dresses for me and I was to stop work immediately and come try them on.
So I did. And I bought an appropriate dress. And they didn't have to be embarrassed by their sister who values function over style.
