I'm in the grasp of a crisis and I need Scooby Doo and the rest of his cronies to come help me solve the mystery of the lip gloss.
I keep two little pots of lip gloss on my desk at work since my lips tend to get rather parched in this dry California climate. One is your standard Smith's Rosebud Salve and the other is also a Smith's but it's Strawberry scented and wonderful and, as proved over the weekend, impossible to resist.
When I came in this morning I grabbed my strawberry lip gloss and was about to apply it when, egads!, I noticed someone had used it. I was so immediately grossed out that I couldn't even function enough to put the little pot down. I just sat there, very confused, wondering what kind of sick person uses a stranger's lip gloss. And I'm sure it wasn't my boss or coworker that used it, so that leaves the cleaning crew. Let's summarized shall we? A complete stranger stuck their finger in my irresistible strawberry lip gloss and swiped it across their mouth. And they possibly stuck their finger back in for another go. The worst part of this whole situation is that I just bought that lip gloss and had only used it, maybe, three times.
I bet you're wondering how I know someone used my lip gloss. Well, I guess this is when I finally reveal to the world that I'm a little weird about certain things. Some people have noticed that I take the second thing from the shelf when shopping. I'm not big on buying the only shirt in my size from a store; if possible I want a fresh one. Display shoes? Yesterday I bought a pair of shoes that were on display and it took quite a bit out of me. And when I got home I noticed the toe was scuffed just a teeny tiny bit and I said to myself "You shouldn't have bought the display pair, others have tried them on." And display makeup? Well, I have too many rules to even get into here.
The thing with my lip gloss pots is I only use one small area of the gloss. I like to leave the rest smooth and shiny and new looking. See here:
I only use that one little scooped area. And the rest is all shiny and new.
And here is the strawberry lip gloss as I found it this morning
Look at the disregard for my scooping system. The whole pot was shiny and new before they used it, did they think they wouldn't be caught?
And just because, here is the evidence side-by-side
Oh, the horrors! And please note that the darker lip gloss also has a second little splotch in it. I didn't do that, so basically this person used both of my lip glosses.
I know I may seem like a nut job, but lip gloss stealing is a gateway crime, it leads to harder ones like baby seal clubbing and crack dealing. This person needs to be stopped for their own good. Scooby Doo, where are you?
