excess baggage

my cousin named afifah, age 2 years 2 months, has a fetish for handbags and lipsticks. and before she does more damage to my fake LVs and already saliva-filled bobbi brown lippies, i thought i'd buy her one of those girly toy handbags and makeup kit. and off to toys r us we went a-traipsing.

suffice to say, the range was disappointing - gaudy, plasticky toy lipsticks and eyeshadow compacts, how deceiving. and not to mention pricey.

heck, i ruminated, i could come up with better than that. and at no price whatsoever.

i had a whole bunch of old lipsticks i'd ceased using, and from there, i pooled together little things to simulate what would be in a girl's handbag. pink things, no less...

and suffice to say, her eyes lit up so and i was smothered with saliva-drenched kisses on the cheeks when i presented the handbag to her. she promptly dropped what she was doing and set about discovering the treasures within, the little baglady she is.

she made her favourite uncle apply the supremely pink maybelline lipstick on her, and beamed when we howled at her clown-like lips glistening with saliva.

i've created a monster. (in other words, a mini-me.)
