SETTING: Meljean’s kitchen, 10:25, about twenty minutes after she and her husband (who we will call Bobby) have returned home (and not having eaten yet.) COMPLICATIONS: Meljean doesn’t want to cook anything substantial or time-consuming, so she pulls out the mac & cheese (generic brand, because she likes that better, and in dinosaur shapes, because […]

I was thinking about eyelash curling today, and I wondered: do people actually do that as part of their daily routine? Or is it just something that models do?
