She’s sitting across from me now, the beautiful young woman with the long blonde hair and gorgeous features and fabulous figure.
It’s an hour long train journey from Glasgow to Edinburgh via Shotts and it’s difficult not to make occasional eye-contact when someone is sitting directly across from you.
Maybe that’s why so many people stare at their phones?
She is a particularly good looking girl with her tight silver fitted jumper highlighting that she has all the right curves in all the right places.
If I was 20 years younger …
She probably still be too young for me! 😀
Yeah I know, I’ve got daughters her age, so believe me that although I’m admiring her beauty there nothing untoward in my thought process.
What has caught my attention is her need to sit in a public place and plaster her face with make-up, thick foundation, blusher, ruby red lips.
Firstly is she so insecure that she has to cover her face in fake colour when she’s already a beautiful girl?
Secondly, call me old fashioned but how inappropriate is it to be doing your make up for 20 minutes on a packed train?
I’m all for personal freedom and letting people do what they like as long as it doesn’t impact anyone else, so no one is questioning that entitlement.
What I am questioning is the need and the appropriateness.
I’m somewhere between Glasgow and Edinburgh, hurtling cross country through a cold winter morning.
Early March and the sun is now appearing low on the horizon scaring away the darkness.
Spring is on its way.
