Then she turned around AND SHE WAS OVER 60! Her wrinkly face was caked in makeup and her skin was orange from fake tanning. She was older and pretending to be younger and truly not pulling it off.
I realized then that I was wearing a cardigan, holding a jar of Polander High Fiber Low Sugar Fruit Spread, and reading a copy of Tea Time magazine. "Amanda..." I said to myself, "...face it, you are meant to be an old lady in a Barbara Pym novel organizing a church jumble and pottering about with tea in the garden." This makes me really happy for some strange reason. Albeit, a tattooed Pym heroine, but a Pym heroine nonetheless.
