This is my first post. Seriously what am I doing? Hopefully entertaining you. I think whoever is running the universe has a serious sense of humor. Woke up yesterday with two massive puffy eyes thanks to a eyelash extension experiment gone wrong. At 8am I arrived at the lash experts house to discover that I was in fact allergic to the lash glue remover. It was also extremely reassuring to read the bottle and discover, “refrain from contact with eyes, skin, and mouth.” If only I videoed the traumatic ordeal. Me slowly applying it to my lashes and trying to leave it on for 5 min so the glue could dissolve and I could pull out the little devils one at a time. Let me tell you it was not a walk in the park.
My best friend S left for AFRICA yesterday. I feel like she is my mother sometimes, wiping away my little olive tears, and telling me when I need to run…..or eat bacon. And then other times I am the mother, telling her when she looks fabulous in a dress and that running 10 rest 1 minutes may feel like the end of the world, but promising that it isn’t.
N and I did a photo shoot the other day. N is tall with green almonds for eyes and shimmery hair, and lips that always have some fabulous shade of color on them. She’s funny in a careless way, always making fun of herself.
Me and my puffball eyes ran. It was hot and sweaty and I listened to the CD my little sister made for me. The sun stung my eyes, and my eyes burned from my lash affair, and my legs felt like I was holding them back so I let them go and it felt like I was swimming in sweat, salt, tears, and dust.
