George: What are you doing?
Joan: I’m looking through these magazines to try and decide which plastic surgery procedures I should have next year.
George: You’re not thinking of going under the knife.
Joan: Yes, I am. I’ve always wanted to improve on the way I look, and I’m tired of these wrinkles and sagging skin. I want to look 25 again!
George: That’s ridiculous. Nobody who is 45 can look 25. People who get Botox, have facelifts, or tummy tucks look weird.
Joan: That’s because they didn’t go to the best plastic surgeons. I won’t make that mistake. Help me decide. Should I get liposuction and a nose job, or should I go all out and get breast implants, too?
George: I think you’ve gone off the deep end. We’ve been friends for over 20 years and you don’t need any cosmetic surgery. You’re perfect the way you are.
Joan: You can’t be serious!
George: I’m dead serious, and if you get all of that plastic surgery, you’ll look like an over-the-hill Barbie doll, and I’m not going to be seen in public with you.
Joan: What’s wrong with a little plastic surgery? I just want to feel better about myself.
George: You don’t need plastic surgery to do that. You just need to spend more time with me and your other friends who like you just the way you are!
Joan: Sagging skin and all?
George: What sagging skin?
Joan: I feel younger already.
