This Dress Was Made For Flushing

The Wedding Dress. A lot of money is spent on it. You wear it for a few hours. And then it's gone - seldom, if ever, to be seen again. We haven't seen my wife's dress in decades, other than in wedding photos.

You're saving that dress for exactly one year, after which it will be used to start the fire for that first anniversary weenie roast.

Save a marshmallow for me!
