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!"
