An Anti-Wrinkle Cream in Time

By Anne Chudobiak

This has been the kind of week, where I’ve been filled with a sudden desperate need for anti-wrinkle cream, but haven’t had the time to make it to a cosmetics counter. There is probably a correlation here. Anyway, this morning, to curb the negative effects of aging and to encourage the good, I skived off to do what I said I wasn’t going to do anymore: drink coffee with writer friends. This had an unexpectedly uplifting effect, in part because the novelist was looking to get his passport application signed. “We can’t do that,” the poet and I told him. “We aren’t considered professionals!” But it would seem that the rules have changed. Writers and waitresses, dentists and doctors: everyone can now serve as a guarantor. This news should minimize even the most pernicious of Canadian frown lines.

p.s. Please excuse the picture. I tried to include a better shot of another cup of coffee, but Blogger wasn't biting. I don't know why not.

Coffee with friends is always a face lifter. You're too young and beautiful for wrinkle cream.

Oh, that's such a French thing! Ha. Indeed, you are hardly in need of wrinkle cream. But this is a timely reminder, as I was just talking about this last night with someone. To think, practically anyone can vouch for anyone now. Writers, even? Do we have to 'qualify' as writers first, I wonder?

Wrinkle Creams" that phrase that has changed the way dermatologists used to research about the skin texture. "Best Wrinkle Cream", the word which gets the highest attention among the women.
