“You clean up well”
Isn’t it funny how “cleaning up” for an event etc. involves more application of gunk than removal? In which state, I wonder, are we the most clean or—approaching the crux—the most beautiful? Without or with gunk (even that which is artfully applied)?
I thought something similar. Although, I usually take “You clean up well” as an insult, as if I didn’t look nice to begin with.
