The Blogging From A-Z Challenge reaches the letter ‘U’ today. This is a very happy looking letter, resembling a huge smile. It is curvy yet uniform, can be imaginative and unimaginative, a bit of contradiction is this letter, when teamed with an ‘n’ and used as a prefix! With that in mind, here is my word for today…..
Unflattering. Now I am on pretty good terms with this word; it is trying on a dress and realising that yes, my bum does look big in this. It is the state of my hair first thing in the morning, sticking up in whatever direction it chooses. This word is just under my left eye! It is swollen and puffy due to some blisters that look like cold sores that have decided they will settle themselves on my face for a while.
It is the cruel realisation that red lipstick on your teeth is not a winning look, or the harsh reality that blonde is just not your colour and adds 10 years onto your age!
I encounter unflattering on a daily basis!
