Lipstick & Lessons


I continue to be without a voice, but I do have plenty of ice cream which makes me feel better about it.  For those who I’m friends with on FB, you’ve read this one.  I had to put it here too though!

*Pure genius.  This was sent to me by a friend; there was no name to give credit for authorship but it will forever admire the mind this sprang from! *

A certain private Catholic school was recently faced with a unique problem. A

number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine provided it was of a natural or neutral skin tone, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal, Sister Paschal, decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance

man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, Sister Paschal asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
