Wedding Dress As Dental Floss??

Ronda Kaysen: When I think of 101 ways I could use my wedding dress, the terms "pasta strainer," "scarecrow" and "doormat" don't usually come to mind. But then again, I'm not a heartbroken ex-husband whose wife of 12 years walked out on him, leaving only said dress behind.

wedding dress as dental floss

When Kevin's marriage fell apart, he got industrious with the billowy wonder his ex had left hanging in her closet, and launched "My Ex-Wife's Wedding Dress," a website dedicated to the myriad ways he can soil those formerly priceless yards of silk and lace.

So far, whenever Kevin hasn't been busy licking his many wounds or worrying about how his two kids will fare in the divorce, he's been using the frock as a jump rope or a rag to clean exercise equipment or (my personal favorite) dental floss.

The blog is lined with photos of Kevin painting a door frame (with the gown serving as a very expensive drop cloth) and icing his knee with it after a particularly rough day playing ball. The site is surprisingly chipper for a guy who's so clearly heartbroken. It doesn't even take punches at the nameless ex (unless you consider the dress a symbolic punching bag; then it's pretty much a free-for-all).

But since his wife allegedly told him to do "whatever the $%@# you want" with the dress when she stormed out of the house, it seems that she doesn't really care. Or maybe his painfully literal reading of her comment has something to do with the demise of their union.

You've got to give the guy credit: He's certainly made some very funny lemonade out of those lemons, and is even hoping to make a little cash, too. He's peddling his idea as a coffee table book in the hopes that a publisher with a good sense of humor will turn the site into a glossy wonder. And speaking of wonders ... I wonder whose coffee table the book would go on? It certainly wouldn't make for an appropriate wedding gift.

What do you think of Kevin's project? All in good fun ... or does it send the wrong message to his children?

How come you do not have your site viewable in wap format? Can not view anything in my Droid.

I believe one of your advertisements caused my internet browser to resize, you might well need to place that on your blacklist.

I experimented with viewing your site with my new iphone 4 and the page layout doesnt seem to be right. Might want to check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cell phone layouts are not really working with your site.

I had been curious about if you ever considered replacing the page layout of your web site? It is very well written; I love what youve got to state. But maybe you can add a a bit more in the way of content so people can connect to it better. You have got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
