LesterBy Shel Silverstein
Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.
The iconic Kim Kardashian recently filmed a makeup tutorial video for her holiday party glam look in a video exclusively for Vogue magazine. It’s a 10 minute video filled with all kinds of unique makeup tricks and tips, but there’s one thing about the video that truly stood out…
Kim K’s holy grail beauty product has been revealed! Together with her whole gang of other Kardashian-Jenners, she’s become famous for her glamorous looks, and it’s safe to say that we all look up to her for her incredible eyelashes. Right? Which is why her go to beauty product comes as a rather a surprise…
She revealed in the video that her KKW Beauty Brightening Powder is the secret behind all of her makeup looks, saying that it saves her from her Armenian dark under eye circles. Now that we think about it, this actually isn’t so surprising! The powder she uses is a silky pressed powder that’s full of brightening pearls in order to add a fresh, awake look underneath the eyes. It comes in four different varieties, including vanilla, pastel pink and pale yellow.
Other than sharing her main product, Kim also provided her audience with a detailed step by step tutorial on how to get that glitzy smoky eye, sharp contoured face, and brown nude lip. Towards the end of the tutorial, Kim says that she’s not a makeup artist. Well, not sure we would agree with that statement Kim!
