this morning there was almost a disaster of epic proportions.
the shock waves could well have been felt far and wide.
showered, dressed, hair did.
work keys. check.
work shoes. check.
out the door, a quick glance in the mirror before i go.
WHO THE HELL IS THAT?
i had to look twice.
this older woman was looking back at me and she didn't look too happy!
no bloody face on.
completely forgotten to do me make-up hadn't i?
as i dropped all of the stuff i had just picked up and trudged back to the make up mirror i may have toyed with the idea of NOT putting any make up on.
for about, oh all of 1/2 a second.
i can only imagine the strange looks i'd have encountered when i turned up to my workplace looking like...
i don't even know.
the thing is in all my adult life i have never gone anywhere in public (on purpose) without makeup.
that's just sad.
i could maybe have got away with it before.
when i still looked like this sweet little innocent child.
but not now.
let's just say they don't call it foundation for nothing.
they call it that because it's there to shore you up, keep you all together.
it's to stick your lips on.
they'd fall off without it.
and i'm not even kidding.
well there'd be just two holes in the top of your head.
two receding holes in the top of your head.
i couldn't even begin to entertain the idea of going to work au naturel.
which i know is pretty sad.
and makes me seem pretty shallow.
but that's just the way i am now.
shallow! to the core!
and it's probably too late to change.
i mean look at these poor saps.
