This morning I had a meeting at school as soon as I dropped the Little Guy off. Usually I'm in and out so no one sees me, or at least pays much attention to me. Today I thought I'd better make a bit of an effort so I'm applying a touch of make-up in the downstairs loo (as you do) when LG comes in to brush his teeth.
LG: "What's that for?"
Me (thinks): "Good Question". Actually says "It's to make my eyes look a bit prettier".
LG: You've got bags under your eyes".
LG: "And what's that for?"
Me - "Just to give me a rosy cheeked look".
LG: "You've made your face red though".
....which I apply to complete silence from LG. When I'm finished, he says:
"Well that one worked the way it was supposed to."
No lie. Swear to God!
