We should always look presentable because you never know who you may bump into.
Over the weekend I bumped into an old school friend whom I have not met for 25 years! I knew she looked familiar and was a school or classmate but I got the school mixed up but she remembered my name! Amazing! I was never really very outstanding in school so I’m surprised she remembered my name.
When I got home, I quickly had a look at myself at the mirror and I was unhappy to find that I looked terrible! I had just washed my hair in a hurry and it was still wet when I left the house so it looked straggly and unkempt. My face was not made up. It looked pale and tired. I wished I had done a bit more to make myself look more presentable. Hahaha.
On the bright side. She still recognised me after 25Â years so despite the straggly hair and pale face maybe I didn’t change that much afterall. Well, only older and heavier but not much different. Hahaha.
Next time I go out, I should take a bit more trouble with my appearance. My hair is usually straggly after being washed in a hurry or oily from not having had time to wash. Theres never any time to have it beautifully styled and blown. I do envy those who have the time to primp themselves up. I never seem to be able to find time for such things even though I’m vain and love to spend time dressing up. I wonder where others find the time to do so.
For me, if I look good, my kids are usually dressed in a hurry. On the other hand if I take the trouble to dress them up and tie the girl’s hair in pretty ribbons etc, then I’m I’ll end up looking like something the cat dragged out. There’s hardly a time when we all look good together. It just takes too much time and effort. Lol!
