Kimberly says that it was “cool” to put Vaseline on your eyelashes when she was a kid. That it made them shine and look longer. All the cool older girls did it. I don’t why they would, maybe mascara wasn’t invented way back then. One day, after school mom went into my Grandma’s bathroom and took out what she thought was Vaseline… nope, it was Mentholatum (similar to Vicks Vapor Rub, or Tiger Balm). She took two big scoops out and lathered them on her lashes. It burned and burned and wouldn’t wash out. Hours went by with them burning, all she could do was put a wet washcloth over them and wait for her mom to get home. Wowie!
OH KIMBERLY!In her 50 wise years she has had too many embarrassing, weird things happen to her and it wouldn’t be fair to keep them in the family. She is special, she is funny. She’s got 8 kids, and as she says “each one took a part of her brain with them at birth”. So what if her house is a mess? So what if she drives like a crazy at night? So what if she talks herself into weird situations she can’t get out of? She’s my mom and I love her.
