The Third Day of Christmas

A couple of weeks ago, I gave a little talk at a college in New Jersey. The night before the event, I remembered that it is customary for professional women to wear makeup. Unfortunately for aspiring part-time professionals like myself, the only makeup store open at the time of this realization also has a one-hour photo department and sells lotto tickets and cigarettes at the state minimum price.

I bypassed the racks of eyeshadow allegedly worn by supermodels and movie stars in favor of a no-name brand on sale for 50% off. The line was so popular that it was being discontinued.

I paid exactly $8.63 for four different shades of "plum."

I applied the eyeshadow at 3:00pm the next afternoon. By 5pm, there wasn't a trace of the makeup on either eyelid.

"What a bargain," my husband commented when I returned home.

Clearly it's too late for me, but you still have time to save yourself from cheap teen makeup this holiday season.
