Vanity, Thy Name is Woman
I discovered another good reason for me not to wear makeup. I am far too vain. If I don't do anything special to my appearance, then I act like a normal person. That changes the minute I think that I look good. ABM found an old picture of me from about 10 years ago. I couldn't stop staring at myself. You would have thought I was looking at a Degas painting or something. I just sat there admiring my smooth skin and my smoky purple eyeshadow. Ever since I relaxed my hair a month ago, I take extra time to fondle it and I stop by every mirror to make sure it looks good. This is madness. Looking at myself shouldn't bring me such enjoyment :-).
