Friday night, I was on a JetBlue flight to Fort Lauderdale, headed to Key West for a friend's wedding.
About half way into my Munch Mix and Coke, one of the flight attendants handed me a tube of Maybelline's Great Lash. I said, "What's this?" He said, "A gift" and continued to hand out mascara to all the female passengers.
I'm not Great Lash's greatest fan, but it was free, so thank you. But here's what's weird:
The flight attendants never came around with any gifts for the males, and I kept wondering to myself, "But what about the cross-dressers? The guys who wear mascara anyway? The 13-year old girls who probably wear Great Lash but don't get the free tubes from the flight attendants who think they're too young? And, the fact that this is really kind of sexist?"
Such was my Friday night. And I still haven't opened the mascara.
