On the way out with full lips
Sir -- I refer to the article (Sunday Independent October 23, 2011) by Barbara McCarthy headed, 'It's bad news when our lips are fuller than our pockets.' I agree it is a sad day when an increase in make-up sales indicates a downturn in the economy. I got a good giggle as the thought crossed my mind that, with the way things are heading, I may well leave the planet penniless -- but it is very comforting to learn that I will exit well made-up with full lips.
