Then I met this girl who has her lips done. I would never have known if she hadn't told me. She has such pretty full lips and they don't look like she just made-out for eighty years. They are full and perfect. So I got the name of her doctor and made an appointment.
The Engineer is against anything fake like this. So I told him if he wants all natural I can go back to mousy brown, unshaven, unwaxed, no-make-up me. I am very plain if I did all this. He thought that was silly and that he was used to this level of 'fakeness'. I don't really get it.
I at least thought my friend, K, would be behind me. She supports all things plastic and is not adverse to botox or lifts as she ages. But she was dead set against these lips!!!! WHY? Apparently because all my features are very dainty she worries I will get duck lips. I was assured that this doctor is amazing and will only inject a teeny bit of whatever it is he injects. My cupid's bow will still be there but I will just have a bit bigger of a pout.
I chickened out. I cancelled the consultation appointment. I care what my friends/Engineer/parents think (to which they would FREAK). However, now that they think I have cancelled I sort of want to do an experiment - get it done and see if they notice! Plus, the thing lasts only six months so isn't it better to know than to always wonder?
