Have something altered
Daughter: Mom, can we go to the mall now?
Mom: Yeah, of course, honey. There’s just a couple of things I gotta do and then we can go.
Daughter: What? What is it?
Mom: Well, I gotta go to the post office to send this and then I have to go get my jeans altered. I promise it won’t take long. Look, I already took all the measurements. I just gotta drop them off. Actually, why don’t you drop them off for me? Look, the shop is right over there. This way I can go to the post office and we can get to the mall faster.
Daughter: Fine. What do I tell them?
Mom: Well, tell them those jeans need to be hemmed.
Mom: Alright, I’ll see you in a bit, thanks.
Tailor: Bonjour, ma cherie!
Daughter: Uhm, hi. Are you the tailor?
Tailor: But of course. Tell me, what do you need?
Daughter: I need to have these jeans hemmed.
Tailor: Let me see. Okay, alright listen, these jeans are very boring. They need a little bit of bedazzling.
Daughter: Bedazzling? I don’t if my mom would-
Tailor: Listen to me, your mom is going to look ten years younger with these jeans when I’m finished with them.
Daughter: Uhm, okay…
Tailor: Voilà. Your mom is going to love them!
Mom: Claire! What took you so long?
Daughter: Here are your jeans, mom.
Mom: Okay, great, let me- What in the world is this?
Daughter: A little bedazzling?
Mom: A little? A little?! These things are covered in rhinestones!
Daughter: Sorry mom… But, guess what? I think you’re going to look ten years younger in them!
