I popped out my front door to fetch my reading glasses from the car. The next door neighbours wife and her grown up daughter, who was visiting, were unloading their shopping from their car.
We greeted each other, swapped pleasantries , talked about the weather, the garden and other things. I gradually became aware that something was not quite right. They were both looking at me with slightly bemused expressions and a twinkle in their eyes.
It wasn’t until I went inside and walked past the mirror in the hallway that the truth hit me. OMG! When I had changed back into man clothes I had forgotten to remove my bright red lipstick!
Nothing was ever said. Was I outed? Did they give me the benefit of the doubt – maybe there was a good reason for the lippy? I will never know. The neighbours have now moved out of town.
