In the Red!
By Beth Beutler
1 "Back to your red nail polish, I see," said Benjamin to his older sister Lori as he watched her carefully paint her fingernails.
2 "Yes. I like the bold color."
3 "Whatever," said Ben.
4 "Hey, red makes me feel like I'm on top of the world, you know," giggled Lori.
5 Ben rolled his eyes.
6 "Like I said, whatever."
7 "I'm serious. I recently learned that nail polish, or a form of it, has been used for a long time. Egyptians stained their nails back in 3000 BC!"
8 "I bet it didn't look any better then," Ben retorted.
9 Lori playfully smacked Ben on the shoulder.
10 "Hey," Ben yelled. "Be careful! I don't want any of that paint on my shirt!"
