Perfect is Boring

This is some art I did today for my freedomwig website. I am trying to figure out why being perfect is so desirable? Why do the magazines correct the naturally beautiful women they hire to model and make them look fake and weird? The touching up of women has gotten more extreme and unnatural. It is wrong.

Don't you get annoyed with people who are always trying to be perfect. They make you feel bad about not being perfect. How about Eva Longoria telling everyone she is still a size 0 even though she has gotten "fatter." Annoying. Jeez, size 0 shouldn't even exist. Invisible is size 0. Zero equals NOTHING!!!

Frankly I don't trust "perfect" people. That striving for perfection is usually a cover for some serious character flaws.

I prefer people who mess up, get back up, dust themselves off, learn from the mess up and keep going. I prefer people who accept their lack of perfection and get on with life. You know? Maybe this is stupid to be talking about in the middle of all this bank crap and insanity. OK I'll stop.
