OMG OMG OMG…
Cynthia turns on the TV to watch Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address.
Vaguely bored, waiting for the speech to start, Cynthia taps her foot and sips on some whiskey.
Just then, Michelle Obama appears on TV.
Cynthia (yelling): Oh my gato!
Cynthia chokes on her whiskey and trips over her feet as she jumps out of her chair. She falls flat on her face as the whiskey glass flies up in the air – its contents landing on her head.
penelope kitten (squeaking): oh my gato!
Marcy: What is it?!
From the floor, coughing, and covered in whiskey, Cynthia manages to point at the TV.
Cynthia (sputtering): Look.
Marcy (yelling): Oh my gato!
penelope kitten (gasping): so pretty!
Cynthia: Now that’s what was missing from the Golden Globes last Sunday. The thrill of seeing someone look so stunning. Not only is her dress gorgeous, her hair and makeup are gorgeous.
It’s the perfect dress for this occasion. She nailed it!
Marcy (knowingly): Michelle Obama is the most beautiful woman in the world.
penelope kitten: she’s smart too. i wish she’d run for prez.
Marcy and Cynthia: Me too!
Cynthia: Okay – here are some stats on the dress.
- It’s by Narciso Rodriguez.
- Fans have dubbed it the “Sunshine Dress“.
- It sold out at Neiman Marcus before Barack Obama even finished his address.
- Originally it was $2,095 but was on sale for $628.
- Rodriguez calls the color Marigold but there is a fierce debate waging on Twitter about the true color – mustard? mango? lemon? saffron? sunflower?
penelope kitten (squeaking): i like “sunshine”.
Marcy: Forget Pantone’s creepy baby soft colors for 2016 – “sunshine” is the color everyone will be wearing this year. I know it.
Cynthia: You may be right, Marcy.
Marcy: I’m always right. Just let everyone know I said so. I want the credit.
Cynthia: Below are some “sunshine” dresses available right now. We should all get one and wear them on the same day! An army of sunshine!
Marcy: Now that’s just weird.
penelope kitten (squeaking): i like it.
