The Perfect Pout – I Bid You Adieu

Ah, the picture-perfect pout made famous by silver screen sirens like the delectable Brigitte Bardot. 



It’s just so mysterious, so quintessentially French – that unapproachable, yet come hither peut-être pout that drives men wild with desire and women wild with envy.  How exactly do they do that and NOT look like they’ve just sucked on a lemon? 

Well, there are two major requirements for mastering the perfect pout.

Feeling Fall in the Dog Days of Summer

For most of the summer (seems-like-forever!!) the thermometer has rarely dipped below 90 degrees F during the day.  The frequent, heavy rain storms have produced only a steamy sauna.  This must be what it feels like to live in the rain forest.  BTW, there is a difference between a “rain forest” and a “jungle,” despite the fact that the Language Police has pretty much replaced the word “jungle” with the more politically correct words “rain forest” for reasons that escape me.  They are NOT interchangeable.  According to the dictionary, a rain forest is a jungle “with consistently heavy rainfall.” 

Besides which, they evoke different images.  When’s the last time you heard someone describe the corporate world as “Man, it’s a rain forest out there!!”?  Somehow, the words “rain forest” do not have quite the same cut-throat cachet as “jungle.” 


But if you live in my neck of the woods, whether you refer to it as a jungle or a rain forest, Baby, it’s HOT out there.
