Back in my agency days, I remember a girl whose client walked out on her. She wasn't wearing any makeup and she had a pimple on her forehead. She was so angry. He said she didn't look like her photos. She wasn't what he expected.
"But I'm wearing such a cute dress and heels and my hair looks great," she argued to us. "Shouldn't that be enough?"
Either all of it matters, or none of it does.
I am aware, as you are, that in the end - as lifeforms possibly alone on this planet in what might as well be a simulated universe - none of it matters. But in celebration of that fact - and because fuck it - it all does.
