The Letter F

                              Freaking Freckles

Freckles are a contradiction: 
So adorable and precious when you're a sweet little child. And grow into tawny smudges with women utilizing every ointment available to banish the darn things. Hah!

With that I supply a one liner from my new manuscript:

"You'd look so much better with make-up. I'll zap those ugly freckles." She flashed a set of pearly white teeth with a guarantee---
to transform me into a glam queen.

  1. Ah, freckles. I've always had some, but they're light. I've got a friend who is covered in freckles, though. She hates them.

    1. Freckles, when placed strategically are cute. But that's not usually the case. Mine had lost their shine.

  3. Sorry, for those who don't know her, Lucy Lui was in Kill Bill and the Charlie's Angel's movies. Plus a bunch of other stuff.

  4. I don't know--there's something about freckles that says "fun." I expect people with freckles to smile a lot and be generally fun people. Odd, I know. Perhaps it's because I have a cousin with freckles, and she tends to be like that. :)

  5. I've always thought freckles were cute and remember envying a friend in high school who had them.

    1. I wonder if my friends were envious of my freckles, they never said so, but it make me feel better. Thanks for sharing Tracy.

  6. I guess I never looked at freckles as something not desirable before. My daughter inherited them from my husband. I always thought they were cute.

  7. I hate my freckles. I had them as a kid and was constantly teased. As an adult when I could use make-up, they faded a bit on my face and took over my arms and legs. It's like they're sentient and know just how to tick me off.

    1. Most people do like freckles. I think it's one of those things, if your hair is straight you like curly hair and if it's curly you like straight. I grew up with freckles and always wanted a clear complexion. But now I hear most everyone likes freckles, I never knew.

  9. I like freckles on any age, I've always wanted them. I guess that makes me crazy!

  10. I don't have freckles. Probably a good thing by the sound of things!

  11. Dont' tell anyone. I tried the Jan Brady trick when I was a kid. However, it doesn't work. Nope. Rubbing lemon juice on your freckles does NOT make them go away. Believe me, I tried. Stupid Brady Bunch.

    She tried to.

  17. They cause all sorts of problems. I have reverse ones. Little spots that are lighter than my complexion.
