When God created women, he added a little gene called, "Primping". We can "primp" for hours can't we? Primping is definitely an art form that should be recognized.
The definition of "Primping" is ~
"The female act of getting ready before going out for the night. Such activities include showering, the application of makeup and the picking out of the nights outfit and jewelry. It is also important to note that this act takes several hours and the term 'almost ready' very often means at least one more hour. It is also important to note that if you are man and have been waiting on a group of women to get ready, always say everyone looks great, as one constructive comment that may go against their wardrobe choice will restart the entire primping procedure."
It is safe to say that I will take an hour or more to get ready for an important event or special date. I simply do not understand WHY my man doesn't understand that I 'only' want to look like the big *bling* on his arm.
There are problematic conversations that arise from all this primping though..
For example.. "We only have one bathroom, can you please hurry?", "The mirror is too fogged up to apply my makeup!", "No, you can not go to the bathroom while I'm primping!" and in some severe cases, have you ever been involved with a primping process and have nicked your leg to the point of almost calling 911 in the midst of all this primping which indeed has made you late! I have! Thus, women need their deserved time for primping or else rushing can lead to bloody situations!
How many of you will spend an hour or more making sure every last hair is in place, your lipstick is straight, there's not a single piece of you that is out of place, including the carefully coiffured hair and yet.. what's the very first thing we do when we get in the car?
We flip the mirror down and look at ourselves! It's an insane impulse! Why do we do it? Just to make sure... you know.. making sure that a hair didn't blow out of place while we walked from the bathroom to the car. Suppose there was a wind that could of blown our artwork astray! You never know! And as "Primpers" we just can't let that happen!
Besides... there are times that we were rushed so much by the significant others that we may have skipped some of the "Beauty School" tips and assumed that our lipsticks looked luscious, even though we've not done the traditional "lip blot"..
Do you trust your man when you ask, "Do I look OK? Do I have any lipstick on my teeth?" More times than not, most men will say, "Yes, you look beautiful, and no you don't have any lipstick on your teeth.." Beware.. has he REALLY taken the time to look at you before he answers that question?
Then we flip down the mirror and find a Lipstick FLOP!
See.. now you know why it's safe to flip down the mirror my "Primpers"!
Are you a primper? If so ... PRIMP ON!
