Guy Fawkes never had a facial

November 6, 2009

Yesterday was November the Fifth, Guy Fawkes night for all loyal parliamentarians. I will bet up to $10 that Guy Fawkes never had a pedicure and facial, which is what I enjoyed yesterday. In those distant days male vanity was not unknown and peacockery was clearly evident in dress styles for men. Of course the gulf between those who could afford such nonsense and the vast majority who went around in rags was immense. The gap has narrowed in the twentieth century but seems once again to be widening as the rich become fearful and seek to grasp ever more of the wealth generated by poorer and poorer workers. those who have a job that is. Just in case you are wondering the pedicure and facial was a gift from my children. Were they trying to tell me something?
