Drove up to Bellevue on Thursday with the daughter for a ‘girls day out’. She talked me into having my lips and chin waxed at Gene Juarez. She always gets her brows waxed there, but I’m okay in that part of the face. I don’t think I’ll be doing any waxing again anytime soon. My face feels funny without all those little hairs. Besides, it hurt! After that, we had facials scheduled at the Clinique counter. One of her friends is a salesperson there, so he did us up together. It was okay, but I think I prefer the stuff I use. I did buy a lipstick and eyeliner, though. Then, we had a nice lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. I stayed almost totally compliant. I didn’t touch the breadbasket. Ate an omelet with portabello, asparagus and artichoke sauce. Ordered tomato as the side instead of potatoes. The indiscretion happened when daughter couldn’t finish her piece of key lime cheesecake. I just HAD to taste it! Took three bites. It was worth it.
We did a little shopping in the mall after that. Bought some smelly bath products. We browsed in the jewelry stores, until we thought the traffic would be cleared up enough so we could drive home. When we got to the car, daughter noticed her wallet was missing. We backtracked our steps to every place we had been that day hoping that it had dropped out of her purse somewhere and someone might have found it. No such luck. We figure someone took it out of her purse while we were having our facials done. We drove home making lists of all the banks and credit card people and places that take automatic payments from her accounts so she could take care of it quickly. What a bummer ending to such a perfectly good day!
