I was watching the Emmy Awards the other night. I noticed 2 things about all the celebrities: 1. Everyone looked very well-rested...and I mean funeral-home-embalmed well-rested 2. Everyone had identical foreheads.
Neither of these 2 phenomenon looked normal. Both made me feel very uncomfortable.
Is it contagious?
If I am in the vicinity of any of these rested individuals, will I contract this deforming disease?
I don't think I would look attractive if my forehead was covered by a wax plate. I don't think I would look attractive if I stuffed cotton under my upper lip. I don't think I'll look better when I'm dead and embalmed than I do when I'm alive and animated.
I never hear anyone speak favorably of someone who has done botox or collagen injections. I usually hear "OMG! What did they do to their face?" or "They don't even look like themselves anymore!"
Why do people do this?
When I'm 80, I want to look 80. I don't want to look like a 20-year-old with a dowager's hump and varicose veins. Grandmothers should look like grandmothers...not aliens. Don't confuse the children!
Yes, I'm self-conscious about my gradually sagging skin, but we're self-conscious about something or other at every age. Accept it!
