MISCELLANEOUS – MIMES

MIMES

Looking at the two mimes on the street corner with their white face paint so clean, bright red lips so flawlessly outlined, eyes circled in black for a dramatic flair, stupid looking hats, white gloves so fancy looking, striped black and white shirt with perfectly matching black pants, and ghastly suspenders! “They are a disgrace to mimes everywhere! she hissed to her twin. I can’t stand looking at them…my eyes, my eyes!” “Look away sister look away” brother slobbers his white face paint melting showing the rotten flesh beneath it. “I can’t it’s too terrible!” sister cries the black paint around her eyes thinning revealing a worm squirming inside her iris. They inspect each other’s torn, dirty clothes with satisfaction. “Another mime on mime action tonight yeah sis?” his foul-smelling grin snarls. “Yes brother it’s perfectly delicious!”
