Kevin Cotter was devasted when his wife of 12 years moved out last July. She packed up the car with all her possessions but she left one thing in her closet. "What do you want me to do with that?" he asked her. "Whatever you #@$%# want," she replied, and left.
To help himself cope with the trauma of divorce, Cotter set up a website called "My Ex-Wife's Wedding Dress" and decided to invent 101 uses for the dress. So far he has documented 23 uses, including pasta strainer, skipping rope, barber smock, dog bed, camera lens cleaner, Christmas tree skirt, coffee filter and barbecue cover. Kevin demostrates its use as a dog toy, above.
He has asked for help from readers to think up more uses so he will reach his goal of 101. Cotter's website has attracted lots of fans and his ex-wife is not happy about his project.
"Nothing about divorce is pleasant or easy and I will share some of my experiences and at the same time lighten them up with some creative uses for this dress I was stuck with."
