The other day I had lunch with a girlfriend and after enjoying the house salad and grilled oysters we had botox for dessert.
It was delicious.
I know this is disagreeable to many of you: that many believe any procedure to mask the effects of aging are disingenuous and evidence of superficiality.
I would like to respectfully disagree (through my plump full lips).
Let’s start by admitting to a few things, shall we?
We ALL participate.
If you brush your hair, wear a bra, manicure your nails, use moisturizer, wear make-up, wash your clothes, apply deodorant, swish with mouthwash, have an opinion about the cut of your jib , blahblahblah…
… You are PARTICIPATING.
And don’t give me any crapola about the differences between health & hygiene and vanity.
It’s a slippery slope people and the pitch is slathered in spf sunscreen and BB cream.
My reasons for the occasional dabble are:
To appear attractive (duh).
To give the impression of health.
To counter balance all of the other physical ‘things’ that I can’t seem to get a handle on (THAT list is l-o-n-g).
And I’m intrigued with science (Which may sound a little lofty but these procedures do represent medical advancement).
If a little nip-n-tuck, a needle prick, a laser light, a smidge of filler is not something you think you would do- so be it. I’m all aboard with your choice.
But my ship has already sailed…
And the weather is beautiful.
