plus, liking your face more than you think
I literaly laughed out loud. His life will never be the same, and that's good for him!
The first thing I said when I saw the 21 year old boy who would someday be my husband was: “you look just like my father.” So, yeah.
Should we talk about wearing—or not wearing—underwear in public?
I had to laugh! Your situation was a good reminder of Japan's shame culture in that he knew you "lost face" by having your dress blow up. Him apologizing to you was a way to help you "save face" and thus mitigate the shame. So very Japanese!
A few years ago there was actually a study on the other side of the pond (Denmark? Can’t remember maybe England) that showed how people buy cars that look like them (while viewing car from the front) so it’s not just our partners or dogs. Crazy!
Just when I needed a good laugh, I came across your hilarious “blowin’ in the wind” moment. Which I think you handled with your usual grace and charm. I remember another equally hilarious story you shared long ago about another dress malfunction episode that resulted in “indecent exposure.”
Have to say I admire your free spirit, feeling confident enough to go outdoors sans undies on a steamy day. I believe Marilyn Monroe did same.
The notion that we choose a mate that we share some facial resemblance with is fascinating. So when people tell me that I look like my father AND my mother, it may be because in some ways they looked alike, even though my dad was a blue-eyed blond and my mother a brown-eyed brunette. Love how you point out that when it comes to choosing our partners that this selection process may be a sign that we like our faces after all!
Haha, I too laughed loudly at what was a very embarrassing moment. "Saving face" goes far beyond retinoids and salves. Thanks for the laughs.
I am laughing out loud and can feel your mortification!!
We never had a chance to catch up after the virtual meeting with Dr Xi, I’d love to know if we addressed your cynicism?! Thought you might be interested in the recent coverage of female derms over 50 and their recommendations with i-On featured!
