Jerri and the Beans came by yesterday for a cup of coffee after they'd dropped off the Chick at school, and while we were sitting there being Bean-er-tained, and talking when she'd let us, Jerri handed me a magazine she'd been thumbing through and said, "Look at this."
I took it, looked, and thought, "What? Her hair style?" Then I noticed what she was holding and I said, "What in the hell is she holding?" Jerri was laughing as I read a little more of the ad and discovered it sure wasn't what I first thought it might be. (although there are probably some crazy folks out there who just might attempt to use it for something similar to what I was thinking, but I ain't going there, nope, not me.) I initially thought it was some sort of feminine device,
and it was,
just not for the part of the feminine anatomy that I first thought.
What we were looking at was an ad for Jolie Lips: Lip Plumping System.
Is this supposed to replace that stuff made from animal hooves that women are letting plastic surgeons inject into their lips to give them that "pouty" look? It's certainly cheaper, I don't imagine you can even get a peek at a surgeon for the $24.95 price of it.
Anyway, Jerri and I started joking about other ways, redneck ways, to get "the pout", like slapping a bee when it lands on your strawberry lip gloss, or not watching where you're going and running face/lips first into a door, or heck, Jerri said she'd slap someone's lips for less than $24.95, might be a way to make a little extra spending money.
I think I'll keep my old wrinkled lips, and my old wrinkled face too, cause that Secret Lift thing looks like an accident waiting to happen also.
