Virginia... thanks so much for your reply...Do you remember one of the Beatles songs about Elinor Rigby who kept her face in a jar by the door?
Marti... I love Needless Markup, they have the best cosmetologists, and they are, indeed... much cheaper than a face lift
Nancy... thanks so much, but there are some wrinkles there as well as sun spots and other age related anomalies... thats why I wear makeup
Karilea... After I read your reply, I went back and looked at the picture and realized that it was the perfect picture for this poem because those pansies indeed, do have faces... but I've never seen a pansy with makeup.... although I have seen some with wrinkles, especially when they needed water
Scorpio... thanks so much... and yes, we do put our faces on. Sometimes we will wear a 5 minute face for the supermarket, but other times a 15 minute face for a formal occasion
