Nancy, my main character in Why “Moore?” is in the woman’s bathroom before class starts. Her friend offers her a different type of lipstick to use. Nancy doesn’t want to try it, but she does anyway…and this is the outcome. Enjoy!
“This is for you Nancy. I picked it out last night. I thought you might like to try a different color lipstick today. Your light pink is just getting old.”
“You know I don’t like trying new things Tamara, especially lipstick.”
“Oh come on Nancy, just for me.”
Reluctantly Nancy stood in front of the mirror and started to apply the blood red lipstick slowly on her full lips. She started to get a blank stare in her eyes. And then she seemed to lose focus of the task at hand. The motion of her hand left the lips and started to apply the lipstick to her chin, then an upward motion toward her cheek. Instead of an evenly applied coat of lipstick to her lips, Nancy had lipstick all over her face.
Tamara was applying lipstick to her own lips at the time and wasn’t noticing what her friend was doing. Then she noticed. With a scream in her voice “What the fuck is wrong with you Nancy? Are you ok?”
Stay tune next week when you will hear the crusty old chef say, “Hey big man, do you want it well done?”
