A Sisterly Incident

Scene: It's a lazy Sunday morning, and my sister Melanie has carefully lined her eyes in black.

"Eyeliner?" I say, and because my family doesn't wear a lot of makeup, I add, "Are you going somewhere?"

She shrugs. "Maybe. Maybe not."

"Then why the eyeliner?" I prod.

She shrugs again. "Why not?" Then she grins, and says, "Because I can."

I smile back at her. "Good reason."

It's true - I really do think that is a good reason. In fact, I think I'll be so bold as to make another New Year's resolution. This year, I will doll myself up because I can. It doesn't matter if I have anywhere special to go, or anyone special to see. There doesn't need to be an occasion to look good. So thanks for the lesson, Mel.

Yay! I think this mindset is very healthy... do it to please yourself, because it's fun. :)

Definitely reason enough. I would wear winged eyeliner to work everyday this summer and my co-workers kept commenting on, but I just felt like, why not? I like it, I'll wear it till I'm tired of the look, then move on.
