This account is priceless. There have been times when I stood at a counter and felt like an intruder. Love the attention this lady received. Your descriptions made me feel I was part of the encounter. Excellent writing.

Love the lipstick metaphor in the first sentence, and the whole piece was utterly charming.

We all wish we could be treated in such a special way by sales staff! Very nice entry. It's well written and it's a charming story, too!
Congratulations on your placement. This is a very unique take on the topic...love the title!
I'm so glad you wrote this great little slice of life. I too have noted how cheer, kindness, appreciation, and good can take on a life of itself and spread outward. The fact that you presented a complete story with so few words attests to your skill as a writer. Congratulations.
