Mrs. Wertheimer gazes at her reflection. She regards a face that has, at various times, been called "luminous-, "stunning-, and "flawless-, and which, over the past few years, has been referred to as "handsome-. Although she does not appreciate this adjective, she supposes it is better than many of the unattractive alternatives that could have been used had she not been fortunate enough to receive Botox injections before anyone else in her circle ever even heard of the stuff.

She practices her smile for the subway excursion. After all, she doesn't want to appear out of place among these people.
