It's few things that will keep me stayed in the house more so than a bad face day. I suspect that's true for a lot of people, I don't think I'm alone in this self-consciousness.
Bad hair day? Between aging curly locks and the weather always at some level of humidity, I suffer those on a regular basis. Everyone has their own solution for days when your hair just doesn't want to cooperate. Bed Head Stick is one of my personal standbys, assisted by a cute hat. The hat, whether a fashionable slouchy hat or baseball cap, has to be somewhat presentable or that just makes it even worse.
Broken foot, sprained finger? Any bodily injury would be worn as a badge of honor. Regardless of whether it occurred as a sporting accident, a clumsy fall, or a serious condition. If we are able to be mobile, we will proudly go out, showing off all of our medical accessories, even cutely embellished.
But a bad face? In the house. You know what a bad face day is. It's generally marked by a very large pimple or series of them in a prominent place on your face. Or your kid swings a racket and accidentally hits it with you, causing a beautiful black & blue on your eye. Or it can be your cheeks swollen like a
chipmunk from dental surgery. Its some facial blemish not easily covered even by a good brush over of MAC.
What can you do for such a thing? You want to wear a button that says "I don't usually look like this!" for all those people you will never see again, or worse - those people you will! But what can you do? You can't hide forever. So off I go. And in case I feel the need to hide, I'm wearing a new scarf.
