Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

I always knew the day would come. I just didn't know it would happen quite this soon. Well, really I knew it had to be soon, just not this soon.

We had a really long relationship. I loved you so much. We were together everyday. I went nowhere without you. We went together like two peas in a pod! And now I'm told you are gone.

I'm talkin' about lipstick here folks.

My wonderful lipstick that I have bought from Avon for the past 15 years, "Bronze Treasure" has been discontinued. How in the world can that be? Is there no justice in this world? Have the executives at Avon lost their minds? Oh! the humanity!!!

I would buy 5 or 10 at the time. I begin to take for granted that my Bronze Treasure would be there forever. I got down to one tube and now it is almost gone!

Panic began to set in tonight after speaking to my Avon lady. I immediately headed out to Walmart...something I do when I am desperate. I could find nothing that even remotely resembles my Bronze Treasure.

Not wanting to come home alone, I purchased a tube of "Canyon Canyon" by Covergirl, a long lasting coppery lip stain that you cover with a clear gloss.

I will need paint thinner to get it off! There is no licking or washing it off. By all indications it will last all day, as advertised.

I will miss my "Bronzed Treasure" greatly... it matched my hair and everything. I know I will have to find a way to move on.

Have I mentioned I don't like change?
