Bags and Diplomacy

I had put on a little mascara before this important meeting, so all day my lashes feel frosted and heavy.   

On the way home, I feel it’d finally caked all around my eyes.   Looking in the mirror is not an option so I ask my ten year old son:

“Has my mascara smudged?”

A puzzled look.  Then he decides to venture a question:

“What do you mean mom?”
“Oh. Um, is there any black circles around my eyes?”
“Oh. Those are just  the bags under your eyes, it’s like you are getting older. But you are not.”

My son the diplomat.


  1. Ohh yes, he's a diplomatic chap alright...cute guy... :)

  2. Sounds like a very smart young man!

  3. Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you did, I took a look at your blog, I really enjoyed it, you have this great sense of humor sprinkled throughout it.

    It made me smile. I guess because of the "heavy" blogging that I do, I would rather read blogs like yours. They make my day better!

  4. very sweet boy!:) wow i must say i was surprised that you already have a son.. i thought we were just of the same age bracket that's why i thought when you told me "when i was your age.." i was like i'm just your age. yea now i know.. :p

  5. Awww. How sweet is he!? He's going to be a charmer!

  6. Cute Boy!!.. Let him grow up and think of all the ladies whom he is going to work his charm on!

  7. Awww, he's so sweet :) Only 10 and already a charmer.

  8. It's really weird how we lose the capability of telling the truth and turn it into something negative as we get older.

    Kids just make it cuter...

  9. Hey...did I also tell you that you've an award waiting at my blog...please do visit and accept it... tk care

  10. Ha! Kids call it like they see it - can always count on that!
    You're quite good at these 100 word posts, Shopgirl. ;)

  11. Honesty AND diplomacy all packed into one ten year old boy.

    My guess about the black smudges/bags would be that the heavy sticky lashes were to blame.

    He is popular with the ladies, which makes me worry actually.

    Starlight -

    Thank you. So are you.

    Mladen -

    That's so true. I was beginning to think that the irony of the story was lost due to my poorly painted picture and then you made me think maybe it's still there. He did make it cute, I was laughing.

    Jayne -

    That is what is so adorable about this. They don't step around it. Thanks it was very tough the first time but I've done a few now.

    Nari -

    He is good at the honesty part. Diplomacy? it certainly has been fun to watch him try.
