Tonight, I not only insulted a friend, but I embarrassed myself beyond belief. It was a classic Weenie moment!
Tonight I was discussing the recent chick-flick Bride Wars, which features Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. In the movie, both stars look haggardly and tired. They both look like they've been poked with the ugly stick.
I was sitting at a table with my running buddies describing how Anne Hathaway's eyeliner made her eyes look puffy, tired and worn out. This is exactly what I said:
"Who in their right mind wears eyeliner on the inside of their bottom eye lid? It looks horrible. Who would do that?" I asked looking at M and her husband. Then, I looked over at Cole, who was sitting directly in front of me. She was wearing eyeliner exactly the same way Anne Hathaway does in the movie. Doh! I mean a really big DOH! Open mouth, insert foot! So, I quickly turned to Cole and, in hopes of making things better, I said, "Well, Anne Hathaway is old and you're not so, so, so you don't look old and haggardly like she does in the movie; I mean, not that you look old and haggardly with your eyeliner on the bottom lid, because you're not old." The more I talked the worse it got! M and her husband were sitting beside me laughing their asses off. They were in hysterics--to the point of the ugly laugh-cry. I felt like a moron for insulting Cole and insinuating that only a stupid woman would wear eyeliner on the inside of the bottom lid. I wanted to hide under the table.
I'm sure it would have been absolutely hilarious if I hadn't been in my own skin. But I was. And, I felt bad for insulting Cole to her face.
Whatever! She knows who I am and how I am. She should be used to my tackiness by now!
