Maggie buys a dress in her own fucking size

Based on the series by Brian from Red No. 3, Maggie Joins a Roller Derby League, Maggie Gets a Mater's in Gender Studies, and Maggie Gains Back the Weight and Learns to Accept Her Body.  When I first read about the diet book aimed at 4-12 year olds, Maggie Goes on a Diet, one of my initial thoughts was "or she could just buy a dress in her own fucking size". And let me tell you, a pink size 14 prom dress? Not hard to find.  So when I looked at Brian's original (awesome) manipulation I thought "that dress needs to be her size!" so I damn well made it her size! Obviously the title plays off of Brian's but with my own bit added onto the end.
