Korean Woman


“Have you had a face lift?” the beautiful Korean woman sitting across from me, asked. I had just met her. More than a little surprised at the personal nature of the question, I stuttered a quick, “No.” Then peering at her perfect skin and guessing her to be about thirty, I asked, “have you?”

“Oh yes,” her nod added emphasis to her words, “and I would strongly suggest you should too.” It was all I could do to keep from spewing my mouthful of tea in her flawless face.

My website, however, was in need of a little nip and tucking. After all, it has matured and now knows who it is and what it’s about. But my face? Not a chance. I like what Victor Hugo said: Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face. And isn’t that the truth? No matter how wizened, toothless, and gnarly, a smiling face is always beautiful.
