“You can't go out wearing that skirt.”

“Why not?”

“It's no bigger than a Band-aid.”

“It's what everyone's wearing.”

“You're not everyone. You're my daughter.”


“You're not going to the movie dressed like that. Go change.”

“But, Jeff will be here any minute.”

“He'll wait.”

“We'll be late.”

“Late, or not at all. Your choice.”

“Mom would let me go.”

“Your mother's not here.”

“Maybe she would be if you weren’t such a control freak.”

“And maybe she left because she started wearing Band-aid sized skirts. Now go change ... please?”
