When I took my MIL her coffee and breakfast yesterday morning, she was quite chipper -- sitting at her table, smiling, combing her hair which had just been washed the night before. It looked glossy and nice -- and pink. Completely streaked with pink. At first I thought her head was bleeding, but on closer inspection she had taken a tube of lipstick and somehow applied it to her scalp, then combed it through everything.
She looks kind of trendy. Kind of Taylor Swift.
Has anyone else had makeup disasters? She applies clown faces often, but we can just wipe those off. I have been gradually reducing her makeup supply (nail polish, gone, after she was trying to eat it or use it on her lips), but I don't want to take it all away unless I really have to. She has about 5 tubes of lipstick that she messes with daily, counting and lining up on her table.
It's hard for me to compute this desire to look lovely (natural) with the not-caring when there's sewage on her pants or hands. God love us all, but I guess we're vain at the last.
Any stories to share out there?
