Don't Wear Mascara If You Don't Wanna Cry.

It seems to be a reality, a truth, an inevitability. If I wear mascara, and while applying it occurs to me that if I cry it'll be a pain, and then reassure myself that I won't cry.... I WILL cry.

Nothing, absolutely nothing legitimate caused my tears today- including PMS. No reason. I mean, yes, it looks like Frank and Vinney are going under the knife (translation: thyroid cyst to be removed at tbd date in next year-or-so). But that is not exactly new, not exactly shocking, and actually what I do want... oh, and not prompted by a cancerous biopsy or anything like that, so really ALL positive.

I went to a "reintegration" briefing today and learned all about the homecoming ceremonies and details which was, as you might expect, absolutely fabulous!

And yet, because of the mascara, I cried. Like a maniac. Hehe. Oy.

Anyway, that was my day. Plagued by the doom of mascara, I suppose :) The great part of the day, on top of chatting with my husband, drinking great coffee, learning about the homecoming of my beloved, and having a great class, I am happy to report I received an A on my first graduate level paper and also received the support of my professor for submitting it to a state-wide literary conference! I am thrilled!

And so, there you have it. But ladies, is it not true? Not every time you wear mascara, no. Am I the only one that this happens to? No foreseeable reason to cry, and yet as you apply it occurs to you that "of course I won't cry" and then you inevitably do?

Congrats on the A!!! And hooray for the homecoming briefing (PS - funny story to tell you tomorrow re: Matthews - your Matthew and my Matthew)

As for the mascara - I wear it daily and luckily I don't cry daily, so I am a no-go in that respect.

As for F&V my least favorite little glands in the world...I know it's not super news, but hopefully it can put the fears to rest...

Love you.
