Addiction Story #1, Buttercup: I Know an Addict When I See One

And I definitely do — in the mirror. This is #1, Buttercup, in my flower-titled series on sugar addiction.

The Evil Queen with mirror. Illustrations from the 1913 play “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Jessie Braham White, Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm, Edmond W Rickett and Charles Buckles Falls.
Please don’t be scared. IDK if it’s brave or crazy to put this photo here. But I try to be real with my writing, so here is a real photo, no makeup, no blowout. I’m holding one of my school photos. When I look at it, I can smell fresh green Prell shampoo and visualize pink sponge hair rollers. I see one of the same blue Goody barrettes I was a sore loser about at my 10th birthday party.

Magazine maven, craft coffee lover, legal guardian. Passionate about fashion and lipstick — though it may not look that way when I dash to the supermarket.
