591. Wrinkle wrinkle

© Bruce Goodman 24 May 2015


Mollie looked in the mirror. Was that a wrinkle forming on her forehead? The start of crow’s feet? The beginning of laugh lines and droopy jowls? The onset of turkey neck?

Mollie rubbed on olive oil. It was meant to be a good source of antioxidants and it fought skin-damaging free radicals.

She then applied a fenugreek paste. It was rich in vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed by the body and helps treat wrinkles and fine lines.

This was followed by aloe vera which increases the elasticity of her skin.

Next was ginger. It helps inhibit the breakdown of elastin, one of the main…

“Hurry up and get out of the bathroom,” called Mollie’s mother. “You’ll be late for school.”

    Awesome bro. And so poignant. I don´t know if I have ever told you this but I work with kids. Nursery to ninth grade. The young ladies are in normal to good shape and go around saying how fat they are. You hit it on the head with this short, sweet piece.

      Thanks for your comment and support Ryan. I didn’t know you worked with young kids. Is you new/proposed business in the States connected with that?

        Yes it is! I, with a few partners, am looking to take over an existing pre-school. We are going to make it bilingual, like our school in Brazil.

            English Spanish, though one of the partners is kind of insinuating she would like it to be Portuguese. That would be ridiculous as there is no use for it in the US and a lot of use for Spanish. I´ll convince her yet.

    Good to know that Mollie is a “mature age” student at school. Will keep her brain young and of course the herbal pastes will help with the skin…Mother and daughter together, that is great to be there for each other….
