Airbrushing for babies
This morning you woke up with a red pimple above your eyebrow- to match the little scratch on your cheek and the faint bruise on your forehead – just in time for the passport photos we had to get done to renew your residency permit.
Why today? I wonder, trying to kiss the remnants of your breakfast off the unscratched cheek, and smooth your hair down in an attempt to make you presentable.
But I needn’t have worried as on the finished photo there are no traces of pimples or porridge on your porcelain perfect skin. They even ‘photoshopped’ your fringe.
Well this is Beirut after all.
