They should call it Volgue-ar
“I think it might be time for a little nip tuck around my eyes.”
You nearly choke on your latte, “That’s ridiculous. We’re too young.” But, in reality, you’re not completely sure if this is true anymore.
You watch your best friend pull at the skin around her eyes and say with a frown, “Things are starting to sag.”
“I’m not listening to you.”
She pushes the month’s Vogue across the table, jostling your water glass as she adds, “She’s our age, you know?”
You know. She’s told you nearly a thousand times about the unbelievable similarities between herself and the Kardashian sisters. Her favorite was on the cover of Vogue this month, though you barely lift your eyes to look.
“I heard she lives around here.” You add, just to appear interested.
“Yeah. Somewhere on 23rd Street.”
“I’ll bet her place is horribly tacky.”
“Probably…” She trails off, but you imagine she feels otherwise.
You peek out the window towards the urban swarm of a Saturday afternoon in summertime. You can barely see the pavement with all the busy bodies bouncing around from one corner of the island to another.
She continues to read Vogue with intensity and pull at the skin around her eyes, confirming, “It’s time. I’m gonna make a call this week.” You wonder, why such vulgar, unashamed adoration for celebrities at this stage in our lives? and point to the magazine, “Vogue…” you say smirking, “They should call it Volgue-ar,” although she does not seem amused.
“OH. MY. GOD.” Your best friend squeals at a pitch audible only to dogs and birds as the door swings open and a Kardashian, her Kardashian approaches the counter. “I must say hi.”
Before you can protest, she’s running towards her with grand hand gestures. You watch your best friend giggle, placing a hand on the Kardashian’s arm, whose eyes remain hidden behind sunglasses the size of skyscrapers on her polished face. You point your eyes down, pretending to read Vogue.
