Woman, 50s: “You look so rest­ed, so re­freshed. Have you lost weight?” That’s what you want them to say. Not, “you look like you’ve had 3 inch­es of skin on your face tight­ened.”
Friend, 50s: Did you go back to work right af­ter?
Woman, 50s: Not right af­ter. Be­cause of the bruis­ing. But it’s New York. I could have 2 heads and no one would no­tice.
