Merriam-webster defines island as, “a tract of land surrounded by water and smaller than a continent” or “an isolated group or area; especially: an isolated ethnological group.”
In my family, island describes the place where everyone congregates. That place in the middle of the kitchen that is always crowded, the opposite of isolated. The island is the setting of so many slices of life, including today’s…
“I have so many blackheads!” my sister complained while sitting at the island.
“Well, they say that you can put egg white on your face, then cover with tissue, it will dry and pull out the blackheads,” my grandma said.
“Oooo…Can I put egg whites on your face?!” As an older sister, of course I was jumping at the chance to put eggs on my sister’s face!
Jackpot! My grandma got it a few eggs, cracked and separated the egg whites. I got the tissues. My grandma got me a brush and I got to work.
As I was painting and layering tissue, our other sister asked, “Have you tried this before, ma?”
“No, I saw it on Facebook,” our techie grandma replied.
Turns out you can’t believe everything you see on Facebook, it didn’t work. However, it was a lot of fun for me to put egg on my sister’s face! So it was a win! 😝
