Shh, Charlotte is behind you
Quite a few years ago now, my sister had just come back from her two-year OE.
We were in town in Wellington and I was showing her how things had changed. We were in the chemist at the old James Smiths site and my sister asked me, "who is this Charlotte Dawson person, she seems to be everywhere?", and pointed to a large picture of Dawson advertising an anti-wrinkle formula.
I, very scathingly, replied that she was "some slapper that we had gotten rid of but Australia had sent back to us because they had had enough of her".
I continued on while walking around the poster, which was on an easel, saying, "God knows why she is advertising anti-wrinkle cream, she's botoxed to hell anyway ...".
Who was sitting behind the easel showing customers her beautifully smooth skin and new wrinkle cream?
Yep, Charlotte friggin' Dawson. Be careful people, you never know who may be listening.
