Red Lipstick

Monday evening, I met Geralyn Lucas, author of "Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy."  She was diagnosed with cancer at age 27 and is funny and engaging.  She asked if I would wear red lipstick to the luncheon the next day.  I am more of an earth tone, blend into the crowd kind of gal, but I said, "sure!"  She offered to lend me some, but I said I had red lipstick.  The next morning I realized I  had none, so I stopped at the drug store and bought some.  Sure enough, at the end of her speech to several hundred people, Geralyn called my name and asked if I was wearing red lipstick, and if so, to come on stage.  So I stood on stage because I was wearing red lipstick!  And because I was alive!
