I noticed a scary trend at the party on Friday. At first I couldn't put my finger on it. I didn't know what it was.
There were a few ladies there with a certain look about them. It was different, and I had seen it before, but I didn't know where.
Then I realized. Botox. It was that frightened, frozen, only my mouth will move in this Joker-esk type smile. The look that prevails on shows like Desperate Housewives (well, Teri Hatcher at least).
I live in the Midwest For F*ck's Sake. If people here are doing it, it is probably to late to do anything about it, as it is rampant throughout the country.
Then I started to worry. The celebrities have made tackier things fashionable then a frozen face. Take, for instance, grown people carrying around accessories with Hello Kitty on them. Look at Paris Hilton for f*ck's sake. If the damn celebrities would stop inviting her to parties, maybe she would just go away.
You can always hear women making catty comments about fashion choices. "Can you BELIEVE she wore those shoes?" or "That poncho was so last season." What if our catty little comments start sounding like "Oh my god! Did you see her forehead?? It totally MOVED!!!"
Celebrities have made many horrid things cool, like *insert religious person or political figure* is my homeboy/homegirl T-shirts. It'd be a hell of a lot easier for them to make the "Botoxed look" cool then to just grow old and let the younger generation take over.
Be afraid...Be very afraid...
