The Coveted Blue Plaid Dress

Mother had a blue plaid dress that was a size 12, and my dieting had me about two sizes above that until I hurt my back. The chiropractor couldn’t help me with weeks of exercises. Pain meds left me too groggy to take care of my toddler. So my doc tried tape (from my panties to my bra).

 It helped my back and gave me the gift of slimness so I could fit into the blue plaid pencil-skirted dress, so instead of leaving the adhesive on for three days as ordered by my doc, I kept it on my tender skin for a week so I could wear “the dress” at my dinner party. By that time, the tape had begun to itch, then hurt. 

 When I finally peeled it from my body, skin came off like fish scales. That was the only time I wore the plaid outfit, returning to my larger body and my own clothes.
