Hmm, I confess I..."did not get it". Thinking about it though as I have never felt the compunction to wear lipstick it is not very surprising! :) Having said all that, however--cleverly penned! Welcome to the "Soup", Anita. My best regards. :) john

Maybelline is a brand of make-up; it represents the mask we put on to cover up how we really feel inside.
