Disclaimer: I will have another blog today that is stitchy
This could also be Musings in the Shower or maybe rantings.
On my way to my stitching retreat I did some shopping since shopping in the UP can be scarce.
I was armed with Joann Fabric and Younkers department store coupons. I had a Clinique coupon for a free eye cream, one of the Clinique products I use on a consistent basis. I was excited but apprehensive what the catch might be. I had to check it out.
I got to the counter, which is being renovated. Two clerks or consultants were chatting with each other. I patiently waited while they finished their conversation. The petite one came to answer my questions. I inquired on what I needed to purchase to obtain this little treasure. I really didn't need any skin care products. I have more than enough since some of the ones I have I really don't use since it makes my skin breakout.
Sidebar: I have been battling acne since my teenage years and I'm now 54. Maybe menopause will bring clear skin. I'm still using acne wash!
Back to Clinique. I inquired about eyeshadow. "Noo, that's make up. IT is ONLY skin care," she replied, her tone expressing irritation. She repeated the "it's only for skin care" like I was senile.
"Well then," I said, "I guess I won't be getting any," and I walked away.
Now as I was showering this morning I thought I could have a travel kit. Then I thought, "hell with her and her skinny little ass!" I suppose it doesn't matter to Clinique what I think. They need to get more women behind the counter that understand a woman of a certain age.
So pardon the rantings. Better eat some breakfast and hit the road. Laundry is beckoning me.
