Eye bags

One of the reasons Nando was starting to talk up the idea of a facelift was because he was thinking about cosmetic surgery for himself. Not a lift! He has wonderful skin inherited from his mother, fine-pored, unwrinkled, rosy-peach colored skin. That plus the extra pounds on his face meant he had no wrinkles to address.

However, he has had bags under his eyes for as long as I have known him. He has large, prominent, almost bulging eyes, bright blue and very striking; they are the first thing you notice about him. The second thing you notice -- if he has had a bad day, or little sleep, or has drunk too much fluid (not necessarily wine or liquor, but liquid of any kind, including water) -- are big puffy bags beneath those beautiful eyes.
