To Die in a Beautiful Dress

Working as a sales girl in Special Occasion Dresses is a wonderful way to listen to the drama of life. The other day, I had an elderly lady break down and tell me she wanted to be buried in the dress she was buying. I patted her on the shoulder and told her "Aww don't cry it's a beautiful dress." In retrospect this may not have been the most sensitive thing to say. But hopefully she understood what I was trying to get at. At any rate, she bought the dress. :)

Dear Elderly Lady.

Dresses are for the moment
But you must die
To be reborn.

Thank God. Because it's so
much more fun to buy dresses
when you are young (again).
