How perfect is too perfect…?
She is stunning.
You try not to stare as you each wash your hands at the row of sinks in the women’s restroom.
She has to be ten years older than you. Did she used to model? Should you know who she is? Are you even part of the same species?
Stop being so hard on yourself.
She. Is. Hot.
She catches you looking. Crap.
She doesn’t seem to mind; or if she did, why did she flash you a little grin?
You can’t help but blush a little as you reach for paper towel to dry your hands.
Is this your new non-sexual woman crush?
You notice as she pulls out a small container from her mini denim tote bag. She removes the lid and applies two small dabs of white facial creme to her pristine skin.
You have a frog in your throat, but you muster up the courage to ask her what her secret is.
She chuckles and tells you, “Sleep.”
Right, and genetics.
You ask her what’s that facial creme she’s using.
She tells you it’s From.Ever.Since: Skin Perfecting Facial Creme, that it’s plant-derived, and contains CBD, aloe, cucumber, and other smoothie-worthy ingredients.
She tells you it’s “done wonders” for her complexion, and asks you if you’d like to try some.
You ask her how old she is.
She furrows her brow and winces a little and put the lid back on the creme.
Congrats, you just made this awkward.
Looks like you’ll have to try perfecting your skin, and your manners, at home instead.
