This photo to close out the calendar year was an accident. No, really.
After applying a new red lipstick, I blotted the color with a square of toilet paper, then tossed the TP square into the toilet bowl. Several hours later, long after I’d flushed the toilet, I lifted the lid and saw the carmine-red half-kiss still on the side of the bowl.
The beauty of blazing red pigment against clean-yet-crawling-with-germs white porcelain? It’s a fitting metaphor for 2018.
