This is going to be a real short one and an easy one. The task for exercise number thirty out of thirty-one is “What’s in your makeup bag?” Well guess what? I am male! Southern male at that. Smelly Southern male. I have no makeup bag.
When I go on trips I take my toothbrush, toothpaste, a comb and maybe a razor. Soap and shampoo and all that stuff? Well I rely on the hotel that gets my money (at discounted rate) to provide soap. And again, being a male, I will just use the hotel soap to shampoo what is left of my hair, be the lubricant for my shaving, and clean all other portions of my body. No need to haul lots of stuff around.
On a daily basis, in the man-bag I carry, there is nothing that would be associated with a make-up bag. Sometimes, not all the time but sometimes, there is a comb in there. Various headache remedies are in there, but do those qualify as make-up bag fodder? No idea, but that is about as close as it comes.
Do men even have the real equivalent of a makeup bag? I am sure some do – I have had more than a couple of friends who hauled around all sorts of shampoos, skin care products, and even coverups and tinting products. But on the overall that probably is the exception and not the rule. I would love to hear about it if I am wrong about this!
So, tomorrow. Tomorrow will be exercise number thirty-one, the last one. It will also be my fiftieth birthday. I am ready for the one, but not the other. Maybe I should just write tomorrow’s post now and be done with it.
Oh, and crack a window won’t you?!
