Fin (jumping on to bathroom counter): Whatcha doing now Mom?
Mom: Well, I just exfoliated, and now I'm going to pluck my eyebrows.
Fin: Thank Cod, we could've featured you on Floofy Friday (chuckles). I'm just gonna curl up in the sink for a nap... Wait you're not using hot wax again are you? (Fin and Mom exchange a horrified look and shudder. Mom shakes her head No) Okay then. (Fin drifts off to sleep to the small yelps as Mom plucks)
Fin (awakened by chin scritches, given with freshly shaped nails): Oh yes Mom, those are nice now. (Fin looks up to see a green-faced stranger hanging over her, frightened she jumps from her sink and runs under the bed). WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY MOTHER!!
Mom: Fin, come out from under there! It's me, Mom. See, it's just a facial mask.
Fin (crawling out from under the bed): Sorry, but it was really scary. (chuckles) Remember the times you were allergic to your masks and you broke out in hives? Wait, you did an allergy test first right?
Mom (looking confused and less than confident) Allergy tests are for wimps... besides I would have thrown those out... right? (tilting head to side) I think I'll wash it off now.
Fin (jumping back on the counter to assist while Mom washes and dries her face): All done now? Cause I'm spent here.
Mom (digging in cabinet): I think I'll try a self-tanner next-
Fin (paws going to mouth in horror): NO! Remember when you looked like an orange zebra?
Mom: Oh I would have thrown that brand out, I think. Here we are. Let's see - Exfoliate first, check, patch test? Patch tests are for wimps!
Fin (jumping from sink and running down the hall): I'M GETTING DAD!
Three-day weekends can be very dangerous friends. I'm so glad she's gone back to work or she might have had ideas about a salon day for me.
