After reading your ad in Sunday's paper, I knew I had to sit down and write you this letter. If anyone deserves a makeover it is my mother. She does so much for everyone else that she doesn't have time for herself, so a makeover would be perfect for her.
I guess I should start out by telling you about a typical day for my mother. She gets up at 1 a.m. to go to work. There is no point in her trying to look good for work because she works in a brake shoe factory in Stanford.
The factory is extremely dirty and hot, so by the time she gets off from work she is covered in black brake shoe dust. The chemicals she works with leave her skin and hair dry. She usually works about 12 hours a day, because she often has to cover for other people. After getting off from work she comes home to her husband and two teenagers. Part of her afternoon is spent fixing dinner and cleaning up the house. Then she goes out to bottle feed our three calves and feed our 23 goats. The rest of her afternoon is spent taking care of her father who is sick and has become mostly disabled. By the time she gets to come home at night she is completely exhausted and doesn't care about the way she looks. She pours herself into bed and gets ready for the busy day that awaits her tomorrow.
