This may not look so bad, and in fact it isn't unless you're the one who has to pick it up, put it in the sink and clean it with a power washer. But what you do not know is that this glass was procured and lipstickized within thirty minutes of Little Sister's arrival at the house this weekend.
The following atrocity is a new turn of events. Presumably in an effort to conceal the lipstick marks, or rather because she's unable (?) to get up, walk the three steps to the trash can, and deposit her gum there, Little Sis decided to press it firmly on the side of the glass.
Note: This picture is most definitely blurred due to Photography Wizard's forgetfulness in the department of changing the setting from landscape to portrait or auto. By the way, I am totally making up these setting names because I am only guessing based on the pictures displayed. Point being: I forgot to change the setting, so it's blurred.
GUM. The last indignity. I'd like to point out that she left this glass on a coffee table and made no effort to take it into the kitchen and/or remove the offensive deposit.
A Very Brave Volunteer used some of the existing lipstick in my house to portray how my sisters wear their lipstick. Note that hardly any is on the actual lips. That's because it's easier to slop it on a glass or cup this way.
There are only two things I'd like to point out that are not fairly depicted here: (1)Their lipstick, especially Middle Sister's, is much darker, the essence and thickness of mud. Because I AM THE ONE WHO WEARS THE GLOSSY, DEWY STUFF this picture does not do anything any justice. (2) Brave Volunteer, not realizing she was going to be photographed on the spur of the moment, had not shaved her moustache and beard, so I do not expect to hear anything from any sister about facial hair because this is a Brave Volunteer sacrificing herself for this story. It has nothing to do with me.
One last thing. Tomorrow I have to work, where I will have no internet access. If Middle and Little Sister have anything to say on this topic, I will be responding tomorrow evening or Thursday morning at the latest.
