Orange-faced Girl

Hey girl!  You are young, with beautiful clear white skin, so why do you wear that mask of orange?

You must have been brain-washed by all these make-up ads telling you to wear the make-up of make-up artists, and such like.

But no make-up artist are you.  So lacking in make-up skills that the stroke marks from the brush you used to apply your foundation are still clearly visible.  Did you apply it in a dimly lit room without a mirror?

Your friends, who are they?  I need a word with them!  How can they let you walk around like that?

I stood and watched as the young smiley girl approached a group of hoodied teenage girls who sat on a park bench.  She was greeted with warmth.  She had friends.  I was relieved.

Although still a little confused as to the war-paint look, I carried on walking, past the group of girls on the bench.  As I did, I then understood.  A group of orange faces peered out from their hoodies as I walked past.

 

Question:  Have you ever followed the crowd to fit in?
