What was She thinking?

Out of France today comes this strange story of a Woman being arrested for kissing a famous painting. The kiss left a lipstick smudge behind, which was not considered an improvement to the original.

Maybe she thought it was an improvement.

It must have been quite agonizing to Narcissus to never be able to kiss his image reflected in the pond without disturbing its beauty. *sigh...

Considering some of the modern art that I've seen, maybe it WAS an improvement.

My thought exactly :)

Clearly, she was NOT thinking.

Perhaps it was Her own misguided way of paying tribute to the artist.

Perhaps She hoped for 15 minutes of fame.

Perhaps She had run out of tissues with which to blot Her lipstick and the painting was handy.

Perhaps She forgot that She was actually wearing lipstick, the smearable kind.

Perhaps this was a secret plot by some maker of non-smearing lipstick to get Women worrying about the imprints that They might leave behind.

Perhaps. Or perhaps she wasn't paying attention all those times she heard look, but don't touch!! You are far kinder than I in these matters :)
