QOTW 10-24-11...HELPFUL OR BRUTAL?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK 10-24-11
Do you want to hear the honest truth?
Does your make-up look good? Is your hair okay? Do you have any gunk in your teeth? Is your fly open? What about that stain on your shirt? Are your fake eyebrows crooked? Is your wig or toupee straight? How is your breath? Did you really say that? Are you really going to wear that? Should anyone, especially your closest friends, tell you the brutal and honest truth?
(Do I really look okay or is my vision failing me? As we get older do we worry more about our appearance? "Please tell me if I ever start looking like Myrtle Brown" was a bargain made with Ron years ago. Myrtle was an elderly customer at the bank. She had bright red hair with white roots. She applied her rouge in circles like a clown's make-up and her clothes were ancient and ill-fitting. Yet she strutted around as if she were a model on the runway. No one would ever have told her that she looked very strange. As comfortable and confident as Myrtle appeared to be, would she have preferred the truth to having people laughing behind her back? Should even our closest friends be expected to tell the brutal yet honest truth?)
