I bought it anyway.

While shopping for make up today Joanne and I made a shocking discovery.

The foundation colours were varying in price, not by kind, but rather by colour. Almost a twenty Pula difference between the darker colours and the lighter.

First, a note: Joanne is awesome, she amazingly gets fabulous service because she actually asks for it, something I am trying to learn.

She exclaimed, “the lighter colour is more expensive!” all the while looking around hoping to get a response from, well, anybody.

To which I replied glibly, “does that seem racist?”

Mpho, the lovely sales clerk came to our aid, and when asked about the discrepancy she replied, “it must be because the lighter colours stay on the shelf longer.”

Huh.
