A friend of mine stopped by to visit, and told me she had a “Joni Moment” this week.
Aha, I thought,
time to find out just what that means. Does it mean she thought of a brilliant
invention, a life-saving device, a solution to the world’s woes?
Of course not. She accidentally brushed eyeliner on the end of her nose. She was switching from one eye to the other, got too close, and brushed a wide swath of black on the tip of her nose.
Mind you, I am sitting there with my own black splotch on the end of my nose. But mine is a scar repair-- from skin cancer-- with stitches, and looks like a little spider with turquoise legs (the thread). I am told to put Vaseline on it twice a day, and that’s how we know it isn’t an actual spider, because it just holds still for this.
I sighed. I also remembered that whenever I get a hot flash and pick up a fan to wave it, I smack my nose with it.
So, if you see
me sporting a black spot on the end of my nose, you need not worry that I
smudged my makeup. I merely had my unicorn horn smoothed out.
See if you
can see it on my Youtube Mom life hack videos right here.
