Miss Fitness

I'd just finished my workout: a circuit of weight-lifting, a series of ab work, and a run on the elliptical. "Here you go, Miss Fitness," the gym employee said, handing over my membership card. Miss Fitness! The gym employee was referring to me. I was stunned. No one, ever in my life, has ever referred to anything related to fitness or athletics in conjunction with ME. Yet here I am, referring to "weights" and "run" and "ab work." Who am I? Miss Fitness, apparently.

I suppose I can understand his error. I've been at the gym about four times a week for the past month or so, ever since a little mishap with a Watermelon bridesmaid's dress that I ordered two months ago and then--horror, oh horror--could not fit into when it came in, prompting a frenzied return to David's Bridal and an even more frenzied seeking out of a dress, any dress, that would arrive before Molly's wedding. (Please see previous post for possible sources of this problem.)

Anyway. Miss Fitness. Are you happy, California?? Are you happy now??

Hi, Any chance your bridesmaid dress is a two piece longs skirt and tank style top with beading under the bustline? I need style # 81143 in watermelon from David's bridal in size 16 or up. I can always alter it smaller or maybe any of the other bridesmaids wore or are wearing this style in a size I could use. I will pay full price for the dress if someone has it. Just thought I would check. Email me or call me. or (310)489-6261.
