Doggy face

That got us on the subject of facelifts. Jane didn't think most of the facelifts she'd seen were especially well done, but a few of them were, in her view. Some women admitted to pain, others didn't. What she had seen hadn't convinced her that the operation was worth it. I figured she was right and told her so: her face wasn't especially lined and her wrinkles were few. Her figure is petite and her demeanor bouncy and youthful. "But why do YOU want a facelift, Claudia? You look great."

"Yeah, yeah," I thought. "It's easy to look okay at night in a trattoria with rustic lighting. You should see me in the unflattering light of day. Mine is a face only a doggie could love."
