Terrifying, wasteful and a straight out con is how an ageing Tom Donnelly (31) describes the stupid sheet masks his girlfriend buys in bulk from Betoota’s Mecca Cosmetica.
However strong his opposition to the sheet masks, on Saturday a worn-down Tom agreed to trying one of the Ultra-Hydrating sheet masks.
“Babe, trust me, you will feel soooo good after this” beamed Tamsin, Tom’s girlfriend.
Tom, who was now sitting on the couch basically being waterboarded by the sheet mask, was growing more and more regretful of his decision as time wore on.
“Ok, babe, it’s been 15 mins we can take them off now. Now, try and tell me your face doesn’t feel softer and more nourished after that!”
The cogs were ticking in Tom’s brain, does he tell the truth and say that his skin feels no different but his masculinity has taken a hit, or does he lie and say that the sheet mask was the best thing he’s done since backing a 20-1 winner at Dalby last weekend. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
“Umm” Tom began, desperate for his mind to spit out a decision.
“Yeah, you’re right… My skin does feel so much softer, in fact it feels so soft that I don’t think I’ll have to do another one for ages.”
rSuccess, Tom said the right thing and just in the nick of time.
“Oh, no boo, we have to do them weekly. I’ll order some more for us. Yay!”
More to come.
