|09:40 am - Not said to the waifish woman on the bus today|
Largely because I'm pretty sure she had not interest in what a scruffy-looking nearly-40 man had to say:
A. "Nice shoes."
B. "Sure, the dark circles make it look like you've had a long night and you have a small pimple on your chin, but, honestly, with a pretty smile like that, no one who matters is going to notice. So I think you could go without the make-up."
C. "And if you really thought the make-up was necessary, shouldn't you apply it before leaving the house?"
Current Mood: amused
as for applying makeup on the bus:
1) performance art!
2) perhaps she is bored with the easiness of doing so at home and seeks challenge -- I used to "surf" the high speed line in Philly by standing up without bracing myself, for fun.
3) bet she has a hard time waking up on time. goes with dark circles.
Ook. Ook. And you're probably right.

1) Maybe. She did seem to be good at it and had a larger number of products and applicators than I thought could fit in the smallish purse she was carrying.
2) I can get on board with the "make your own fun" aspect of modifying your daily routine. I often stand in elevators with my back to the door just to see how people react.
3) Now that makes sense.
