It's amazing how looking at a glum face, can be catching. Especially if you go out of your way to smile at someone and they look back blankly. So that's why my wig-stand-friend, with her white Styrofoam face, needed to have a new look. I also desperately needed to do something a little festive, the day before I planned to get rid of my hair.
Last week I posted this as my Facebook profile pic. I knew my wig holding friend needed some serious help. She looked depressed.
Margit to the Rescue
Yesterday, Margit offered to come over with her paints and brushes!
First Margit had to mix some paint colors to boost the skin tone of my Styrofoam friend. It was soothing just watching the colors swirl together. I need to get out some paints in these months ahead!
Margit and I each did one green eye, but like a Kindergartner I begged, "Can you fix mine?" Margit also repaired my lip attempts and she added some shading and line work. I added the false eyelashes and I did a very good job drying the paint. (I'm really excited that I won't be needing my hair dryer for a very long time.)
Betty Lou looked complete, once we added some bling. She may not have a smile as large as ours, but she's rockin' the wig. That's too bad, because we will be fighting over it soon.
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
