Just a cute Story! I went out with “My Girls” last night. As ALWAYS, WE ALL HAVE STORIES even it we talked on the phone just 3 hours before we are do to meet.
We have been friends in some cases since our early 20’s. Interesting enough, Two of the girls in the picture, I met in Iowa when Max Factor transferred me to DesMoines. I begged and bribed my friends to move back to St. Louis with me when I took a job with Sterling Drug (Dorthy Gray, Olgilvie, Givenchy).
Now, CP from Marshall Town, Iowa lives behind me with her husband & children.
CP , in the Green Jacket told us that the entire time her Grand-Daughter was in town last week she would make the mistake of running through all of her childrens names before calling Olivia the correct name. Finally, one morning CP was introducing Olivia to someone and did it AGAIN. Olivia who is 8 years old looked at CP with her hands on her hips and said “What do you call your friends? Lipstick & Mascara?
She finishes the story. We are all roaring with laugher because we all identify with the problem. Then I say “YOU MEAN SHE DOESN’T KNOW ABOUT LIPSENSE? Whats up with that? At that point we all decided to take this one step further and rename ourselves. After ONE BIG ARGUMENT (all in FUN of course)! I am LipSense, Mona is Glossy , Kasha is Oops (longer story but she is indeed Oops), Jackie is MakeSense or Foundation, Kathy is BrowSense (can’t live without brows), Nancy is LashSense and good ole CP can be whatever name she can remember. Love u HONEY!
OKAY…So some of you may think that this is one of those “YOU HAD TO BE THERE” stories although I am quite certain many will identify. If you run into to us…Ask us our current “ROAD TRIP NAMES?”
GOTTA LOVE THOSE GIRLFRIENDS!
