The book is: “Lessons I Learned in the Dark”, STEPS TO WALKING BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT
I’m reading in chapter ten. Here is the setting: Jennifer is getting ready for a speaking engagement. Her son is playing Nintendo in the living room. Her husband is not home at the moment.
(The one thing you need to know about Jennifer is that she lost her eyesight at about age 15.)
So she can’t see her hair, but she can tell by the way it feels that it is not a good hair day. So to fix things up decided that maybe what she needed was a little makeup. One of her friends had given her some eyeliner and lip liner from a new cosmetic line she was selling. She didn’t usually wear liners but decided that under the circumstances today would be a good day to try them. Perhaps it would give her a special look and no one would notice her bad hair.
She applies it carefully and with a new confidence heads for the door. On the way out she passes her son, he comments that her lips looked black. She replied that no it’s a new color, raisin. Her husband, who was to take her to the event, had just arrived home. Since he was running a little late she met him at the door. When he sees her, says with panic, “Your eyes are flaming red!
So by now it was obvious that she had gotten the makeup mixed up. It was good makeup and she had to scrub hard to get it off.
But here it is......... in the next sentence she says:
(“Here’s the practical application for the female reader: If you’re having a bad hair day, just put lip liner on your eyes and eyeliner on your lips. I guarantee that it will give you a special look and that no one will notice your hair!”)page 170, chapter 10, para 5
So there you go ladies, your quick fix recipe for when you have a bad hair day!!!
