Every newspaper and magazine is flooded with adverts from various beauty and slimming centres promising a better 'YOU'. The 'BEFORE' and 'AFTER' photographs are especially hilarious and I often wonder, whether they are for real.
A dowdy, grumpy housewife metamorphoses into a sexy siren! A 40 pound weakling who gets sand kicked on his face by a bully is now a brawny, handsome hunk! Come on!!! I have yet to meet anyone so transformed by a few visits to such centres and I wonder at the gullibility of people who flock there.
So, I decided to take a few 'BEFORE' and 'AFTER' pix of my own in the Labour Room. Here are the results:
Just born- 3.01pm
Just Cleaned- 3:03pm
Just Bathed- 3:10pm
Just Dressed- 3:12pm
This is one instance where the 'BEFORE' pic wins hands down.
Just as a warrior emerges triumphant from a battle smeared in blood with a war cry on his lips, so does a newborn baby make its appearance in the world, anointed in its mother's body fluids, with a lusty cry.
Cry, please... I pray and the baby obliges.
What a Kodak Moment!
