V is for… VIOLETS & VILE Avon Ladies

V is for VIOLETS and VILE Avon Ladies

Long story short:  I got ripped off by an Avon lady.

Yes, I ordered a $6.00 KISS (described as “juicy blackberry and passionate violet wrapped in sensual magnolia”) and a $20.00 Flor Violeta Eau de Parfum along with an 89 cent hand cream way back in February and all I got for my money was excuses and stories about delays and other lies.  Last I saw that Avon lady, she breezed past me with a new hairdo so fast I wasn’t sure it was her until a moment later when I heard her voice raised to a screaming pitch in an argument with someone around the corner.  Who knows, maybe she ripped them off, too.  I think she should be arrested for Theft by Deception, if there is such a crime.  But odds are, it is a small claims matter and not worth the filing fees to pursue.

I just wanted to smell like violets, or a blended scent with violet,  as I am getting older and my signature scent for the last decade or so does not quite suit me anymore.

So, new art for today?

Nah… I’m going to pull some violet favorites from my media library.  All are drawings that posted here before, but have been fading like old violets.
