The Truth About Shooting Stars
It was my first day on the job as Veteran Fashion Designer for TwirlyGirl. Between you and me, I thought it was odd that they would hire me, given that I was only a 9 year old girl with no prior fashion experience. But what would you expect from a company that has talking zoo animals on their Board of Directors?
For my first design, I really wanted to make a splash. If I added up the amount of time I spent on my preliminary sketches, it would easily add up to a hundred… what’s that unit of time that’s shorter than hours? Not minutes. Oh, yeah. Seconds! I easily spent 100 seconds of arduous labor on my first sketch. When it was almost ready, I presented my design to the TwirlyGirl Board of Directors. I named my masterpiece, “The TwirlyGirl Minimum Dress.” The comfort was minimal, the styling was minimal, and the quality was minimal. As I held my prototype up for display, it started to sag. I immediately regretted that 90 of my 100 seconds of design time were spent trying to get the candy machine to work. (It wasn’t even broken. I just forgot to put money in it.)
But then someone sitting way in the back offered a suggestion. I believe it was Wanda the Giraffe, although having only seen neck, I can’t be sure. Her head was poking through the ceiling, so it could just as easily have been Quincy the African Parrot, who does a dead on Wanda the Giraffe impression. Whoever it was had a wonderful suggestion: Instead of creating a Minimum Dress, why not create a Maxi Dress? Maximum comfort. Maximum styling. Maximum quality. Such an obvious idea, I was a little embarrassed it didn’t occur to me earlier. The TwirlyGirl design team spent the next several weeks perfecting it. Yeah I said, “weeks.” I guess it’s important for them to get things right. So here it is — The TwirlGirl Marvelous Maxi Dress!
