Sarah: Coleslaw face

It used to be that light skin indicated a higher class of people, those who did not need to participate in hard labor to earn their living. The wealthy were pale and unfreckled, pampered with a lifestyle largely conducted out of the harsh and damaging sunlight. Where did the days go when light skin was considered desirable?!

Friend: You're really pale, you know.
Sarah: Yeah, I know, but since I have dark hair, it's dramatic, right? I don't look sickly... It's dramatic!
Friend: Hm. No. Your skin is kind of the color of coleslaw.
Sarah: Wow. Thanks.

Yeah, I'm going for a porcelain, Nicole Kidman kind of thing myself. You're telling me that doesn't work? Maybe we could go goth.

Also, your weatherpixie has way more of a coleslaw face than you do.
