I was walking down Huaihai Lu with a purpose. I had read about Tom Ford’s new lipsticks and that he had created the beigy pink perfection I’ve been searching for all my life. I don’t think they’re even on the market yet let alone in Shanghai, so inspired, I popped into Sephora looking for a quick fix of another brand. In Shanghai it’s not uncommon to have a salesperson stand in your personal space and follow you around the store until you finally just run out and this day was no exception. However, after showing me one lipstick after another with me saying no and then picking out one I like and SHE said no, she actually found a really lovely shade of pink/beige and convinced me THIS WAS THE ONE. I walked home with a little more skip in my step. I got home, said hello to Ayi, locked myself in the bathroom and took out my lovely new perfect lipstick only to find the wrong lipstick in the box…it was a dark, dark, purple with sparkles.
and then I read this in the Shanghai Daily News…
A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to three weeks in jail for urinating on a 66-year-old woman during a Continental Airlines flight last month from Los Angeles to Honolulu.
He had been drinking on the flight.
Some days are good, some not so much.
Speaking of good days, Ken and I spent a few heavenly days in Hainan.
There must be a convention in town…
