    Too much makeup is worse than none at all.

    I am getting really tired of this extended scene in the cosmetics department. I hope this topic ends soon.

    Why would someone who is so concerned about her appearance go around wearing readers???

    Women wear it for other women. Very few men care. Except those conditioned to think painted ladies are advertising.

    Yeah, well, that is total bull. The truth is that some women are so good with this stuff that they have raised the bar for what is considered “good looking”, and now all the other women are trying to catch up. There is a huge difference between what is considered fair skin today to what it was 25 years ago. Many men don’t even realise that.

    They aren’t talking about make-up.

    It’s all part of the human obsession with denying (or avoiding) reality. (mortality)

    It’s just live Photoshop in 3D.
    I had a girlfriend from TX once who would not go down and get the mail without “doing her face”. Fun, though. She aimed to please.

    And I think the boomers took it to a new level. My mom is from the generation previous to them and while she takes care of herself, she would never do Botox, a facelift, or spend an outrageous amount of money on creams.

    I’m also bored with this week. I want the kids to age. I want to see Phil marry Val and Holly. I don’t know why Jan keeps things status quo. You can only do so much with Lucy and Max not talking.

    Oops didn’t proofread my typing. Meant to say Phil marry Val and Holly to enter high school.

    This strip is PERFECT just the way it is and should just stay that way.
