Mildred and Arthur were overly conscious of their looks. They were always shopping for new and improved ways to keep up their appearance.
They finally found something they both could really like, a French cream, that promised to take an entire decade off their looks. When it came in the mail they were ecstatic.
They made sure to set it aside, on their favorite counter, where nothing could possibly happen to it.
There was a bit of a problem though.
Their ever~curious son, nine~year~old Ralph, got his hands on it. It lived up to its promise.
