Baby Jane

On the way to the post office and grocery store today, I walked past a woman I have seen once or twice before so she's probably local. The weird thing is she looks an awful lot like a latter day Baby Jane Hudson with her garish lips, raven-kohled eyes layered with blue and a thick pancake crust shifting like tectonic plates across her face. Today she was wearing a red and white striped top that didn't quite cover her midriff. I'd make a stab at guessing her to be in her sixties, but who can really say. Was there a Blanche sitting at home waiting for her?
