Makeup Party...

Ok... so I walked into the bathroom at the office this morning only to find three women in there doing their makeup. It felt like I was walking in on some kind of ritual, and I was suddenly transported back to high school- where the girls whose parents wouldn't allow them to wear makeup would clamber into the bathrooms upon arrival and carefully apply the forbidden goops and paints.

But wait... this is NOT high school... we're all adults and can wear whatever the hell we want. Don't you people have mirrors at home?

Perhaps, much like we do when we get all dressed up to go out, they wanted the company. You know, like how half the fun of going out is getting ready?

Although I'll admit that doing it in a group at work just sounds like not nearly as much fun.

Also, did you join them? Solidarity sister. Peer pressure. You know.

Perhaps... nah, I didn't join them. Makeup at the office annoys me for some reason...

Having make-up on BEFORE you go to work is ok; even applying a little lip gloss at work is ok. But getting all tarted up in the bathroom at work? Hmmm...

I must admit Jenn, I have missed your posts. Not that I am one to talk...lol.

Things like this confuse the hell out of me.

I think it's pretty obvious, they wanted to sleep in! Technically they're at work, just on a bathroom break and they can shave an extra 30 minutes or so off of their prep time at home. It's really quite brilliant when you think about it... :P

Sarah- Awwwwwww... thanks! It's nice to be back ;)

GB- What can I say? Perhaps it's a ploy to maintain the mysterious nature of "femininity"... Mission accomplished, apparently ;)

Michelle- OoooooooHHHHHH! By Jove, I think you've got it! In which case, I tip my hat to these women for their ingeneous connivings and ask only that they refrain from clouding me with loose powder...

Frankly I'm amazed that you ladies go to all this effort, whether at work or not. The only advantage I can see is getting out of 30 minutes of work (assuming you have the forsight to sleep in every morning). It's hard enough (for me) bothering to shave every now and again. But for someone to take 30 minutes every day to apply the stuff, then spend the rest of the day touching it up, then having to remove it all when you get home... it's practically a full time job. In fact, it IS a full-time job. Makeup artist. What I'm trying to say is that I love being a guy (who does not wear makeup).

Joe- you make me laugh... and you also make a very good point. I can't be bothered with make-up on a daily basis for this very reason... hence my annoyance at the little party in the bathroom ;)
