I'm ready for a lift!


In her mid-forties, Connie is becoming more and more concerned about wrinkles in her face.  She wants to have plastic surgery to wipe out tired feelings.  Her friend, Liz, on the other hand, is kind of reserved about it....
Connie: Do you know anyone who's had plastic surgery?
Liz: You mean like a breast enlargement?  I don't think that's really necessary.  That's not the way a woman should stay attractive.
Connie: Why not?  Why can't we go back to the way things were?
Liz: Because!  I don't know!  But, Connie, you wouldn't do that, would you?
Connie: Darned right I would!
Liz: Maybe make-up would be enough?
Connie: Come on, Liz.  Be open-minded!  Look at my eyes!  They're puffy.  And my eyebags, they're dark and loose and full of lines and circles.  I really hope surgery can wipe out the tired feelings.
Liz: But what would other people think?
Connie: I don't care what other people think.  I'm ready for a lift.
