Forgive Me Friday

Something tells me that if my face could do this I wouldn’t have gotten all of those speeding tickets.

When there are times that I am wrong (rarely ever), I say I am wrong. This is one of those times. I’ll start by extending an apology to the late Mary Kay. I don’t assume it is good for one’s karma to insinuate that the deceased mogul resembles a cross dressing Dustin Hoffman. In my defense, I wasn’t aware she wasn’t still around until last night at the “party”. Obviously, I am not a Mary Kay historian.

I have to give the company the credit it truly deserves. My apology is for judging the mascara by its applicator so to speak. Don’t worry, I wasn’t talked into joining the cult. I am not quitting my day job nor my dream of becoming a writer to paint pouts and strut around in mink stoles (knowledge courtesy of  Ms. Carolina). However, my perception of Mary Kay as changed for the better. Prior to last night, those perceptions were frozen in time. The last impression I have of the brand dates back to ’02 when I couldn’t escape the sight of my best friend’s high-resolution eye shadow every day in math class. She always bragged that it was Mary Kay and that her mother was a beauty consultant… so of course she knew what she was doing.

The truth is that I actually ended up buying about seventy dollars worth of the stuff and my purchases weren’t even influenced by friend-guilt. Well played Mary Kay, well played.

My second apology is to those of you who read this blog and is in regards to my post about not telling your friends if you plan to quit smoking. I am a lying hypocrite. Why? Because I did tell my friends. I told all of you. I consider anyone a friend who takes the time to read my junk (that’s what she said?). So, I apologize for not taking my own advice, and I sincerely thank all my blogging friends for being such dashing human beings. Unless you don’t think we are friends, in which case I hope you choke on a mink stole.

      • cigarettes? aww. but you quit. that’s good. i helped my ex-wife quit when she was 20. i can make anyone quit if they’re willing to sit in a chair in a quiet room and listen to every word i say for about 30 min. no hypnosis, no beating or slapping. just telling them the realities of the rest of their life. works even better if they have children.

        • You know what? I believe you 100%. I was just sick of the way I felt all the time. Paired with training for a run, it was an easy decision. The leg work is what is difficult, but I can feel the health benefits already.

  1. You were wrong? Why do I doubt that?

  2. Admit it, you seriously considered becoming a Mary Kay lady. Everyone wants the pink Cadillac.

  3. HAHA My sister had been wanting to be a Mary Kay Consultant for a long time because she uses their products religiously and she really loved her consultant and I think she wanted the pink cadillac LOL Anyways she finally signed up and was bombarded right away with needing to buy stock and do this and that within two weeks she was DONE with that fantasy. I don’t blame her either. She did say she will always use their product though. I enjoyed your blog I would like to kindly ask you to visit mine

    • That story seems common among people who have tried it. It is all about getting people “under” you so you can get a different color coat that deems you have moved up apparently. It’s like karate with lipstick. Thanks for the compliment. I am glad you enjoy my blog. I am looking forward to reading more of yours!
