My peer group consists of very honest people. The kind that requires Diplomacy 101.
On days when I take the time to put on my face.....the whole shebang.
"What's that stuff on your face?" asked my husband while peering curiously over the dining table.
"What?! What do you mean by stuff?" I frowned.
Sensing he's in a sink hole about to go under rapidly, he backpedalled. "Err.....it looks....err....good"
On days when I can't be arsed to put on my face......
"Hey! Your skin looks great! What did you do?" the nosy husband asked.
"Nothing much. Just a touch of concealer and powder."
Looking confused trying to decipher the last 3 words. "Oh. Whatever it is, it's great. Better than that mask you had on the other day."
On days when I tie up my hair, spray with a decent amount of Elnett and all the unruly flyaway hair pinned neatly back...........
"Mama, you look like that kung fu guy in the movie. "
"Err.....oookay. I think I'll go read a book. "
On days when I can't be arsed to do my hair so I look like I'm carrying a bird's nest on my head.......
"Marlene, did you just come out of the hair salon? Your hair looks great!"
"I didn't do anything. I forgot to brush my hair."
"Erm....hahahaha.....guess you should start "forgetting" to brush your hair more often. Looks better than being tied up like... like..."
"Erm......oh look! The kids are out now. Guess we'd better go pick them up. Gotta go!"
