faceless


I have now been christened into china life. Yes, I have been robbed. Maybe pick pocketed is the word, except that I did leave my bag sitting in the shopping cart. The truth is that I am very lucky. Remy and I had run out to wal-mart for a few items. We were feeling quite proud of ourselves since we had only caused a few rubber-necking incidences. Remy was pushing the cart though and some woman - he thinks she was following us - kept pushing him out of her way. At the end of the trip we were actually running away from her. We made it to the checkout counters and I took two steps over to grab a new grocery bag and Remy stepped to the beckoning toy aisle and it happened. I have a big black tote bag and inside was my wallet, my makeup bag, my camera and various other non-essential, just hanging out items. I noticed upon stepping back that the inside zipper pocket was hanging out of the bag. I looked inside and there was my black, blend-in, wallet, and my camera - also black. I didn't think anything else about it. Sunday morning i wanted to put on my favorite lip-plumping lipstick, my pretty pink blush, and that is right no make-up bag. Do you know what I look like without my face? I hope they like clinique. Man, I loved that lip gloss. Really I am quite lucky my wallet was still there. I will be more vigilant next time.

wow, so it happens...and to think that WE are in the most dangerous city in the world, huh?!
Well, in one sense...at least you still have your camera! Make up is easily replaced...you just have to go without plumpy lips :)

People may really start rubbering necking at you without your plumb lips :) Glad nothing else was taken!
