Daily Post Prompt 19th March 2018: Blush

As a child, I would blush like crazy if anyone so much as looked at me.
I hate being the centre of attention, though I am comfortable enough in a crowd as long as too many people aren’t actually looking directly at me.
I’ve had a couple of instances where I’ve had to address a group, and although they were most polite and said it wasn’t, I felt the blush on my face was so red you could cook toast on it.

Years ago, women would pinch their cheeks to give them a becoming ‘blush’, and in later years cosmetics took over. I’ve always admired those who can apply it so perfectly that you can’t see the join and their complexion looks au naturel.
I don’t bother with makeup,  and flush or blush at the drop of a hat, resulting probably in a pink blotchy pebbledash effect.
Hubby rubs his hands and says ‘Feel the heeeeat!’ when I’m having one of my best, but I can blame it on the meds now as it’s one of the side effects, and I blush/flush all over!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
