Primp you fool.  PRIMP!


Primp your shorts or thong before you roll out of bed

Primp your face with soap, water, toothpaste, the mirror, the comb, the brush

Primp your body with the decision of what the hell to wear, as if anybody cares, really

Primp your stomach with the latest diet drink for breakfast

Primp the same depository at lunch with a conspicuous salad.. oil and vinegar only, right?

Primp the mouth with the fanciest and sweetest Starbucks... morning and afternoon

Primp your face with the moisteners and smooth life-giving-keep-the-wrinkles away lotions

Primp your ears with enough contact with your cell phone to appear important

Primp your wallet with enough plastic to run your life on borrowed time,

          hoping with a quick'll hear, "oOOOH, you are soOOOO rich!!!!!!"

Primp yourself into the 5 to7 happy hour bar where others are "FRESHENING UP"  for the rest of the daily PRIMP-A-THON


Hey! You think you're void of such vanity?  It's called denial, baby.

Soooooooo, better hurry up, you're about to be late

Primp yourself for the shrink that will tell you "DO WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEEEEEEELLLLLLLL GOOD, RIGHT? 


Primp you fool.  PRIMP!

Lots of spanky energy here; I like it.

Oh yeah, there's a lot of primping going on. I've long since passed that stage of my life, and actually wasn't all that "into" it even when I was into it. Gotta love it!
