Why does this always happen to me?

The state of Alaska asked me to participate in a video about underage drinking. They told me I’d just be doing a voice over where I’d read my column about the Barrow girls basketball starters who were suspended for drinking. So I showed up with no make up, in a t-shirt with a blue denim Bally shirt blowing in the breeze over it and my hair four hours away from my hairdresser’s appointment and guess what… that’s right. Marian is in heaven spinning because her little girl is now captured forever on camera with no makeup, a t-shirt and hair that looked like my finger was in a live socket all night. And I don’t care how nice those filming people tried to be about my looking fine… I looked in the mirror before I left my house. I looked fine for a voice over and a visit to the beauty salon and absolutely nothing else!
