Crying Over Broken Lipstick
Since I didn't wear it often, I had a lot of cheap makeup, but very little "good" makeup. One of the things I have and love though is what has become on of my two signature lipsticks - a tube of Estee Lauder Autumn that my mom gave me. She didn't like the color on her, but it looks awesome on me. It's become my everyday color for when I don't want to go all-out with the cherry red lips and vintage/rockabilly look.
I wore it to a family reunion this weekend, reveled in a few compliments about how good I looked (most of these people were used to seeing me with no makeup, horrible hair, and in faded out jeans and t-shirts), and of course had my favorite lipstick in my handbag. That was all good. I even put it up out of reach when we got home.
Well, I thought it was out of reach, but I forgot I am mother to an aspiring mountain climber. Later that evening, my husband was supposed to be watching our son so I could catch up on some freelance writing assignments. Unbeknownst to me, hubby had decided to kick the toddler out of the bedroom and shut the door, so he was in the front living room unsupervised. I walked past on my way to the kitchen and noticed he had climbed up on top of a table and had my purse. He'd gotten my lipstick out, eaten about 2/3 of it, and had some of it smeared all over himself, my white couch, and my purse.
I tried to clean up what I could, but the stains aren't coming out of anything. I was so upset, especially when I found out that the lipstick costs $24 to replace. I did manage to salvage the bit that was left by melting it back down in the tube with a hair dryer and sticking it in the freezer for a few hours to "set", but the whole thing just makes me mad because it could have been avoided if my husband would have kept his word and watched our son for an hour or two, or at least let me know he had shut him out there.
