I’ve been looking like an ancient old hag 30 years senior. Finally, today I decided to do something about it. Went to Sephora, got a complicated, expensive makeup done. Neon yellow nails. Let the Jewfro flow freely. Even wore lipstick, which I do about once a decade.
Everybody noticed. “Wow, you look great! So good to see you are doing better!” Two elderly Vietnamese ladies stopped me in the street to touch the Jewfro (“Gold! Pretty gold hair!”).
The only person who didn’t notice is my husband. Because he’d never noticed I looked like crap before all this effort. To him I always look stunning.
I do feel better, though.
