Well, lots of things, but up there in the top five would be that I had no photographers following me around when I was 19.
(What’s the old saying? “The girls all get prettier at closing time.” No. And I don’t even want to know what that stuff is all over her face. She looks like she’s about to suggest we go get some French toast.)

The white crap on her face is pretty revolting looking. The camera caught her eyelids in a nice combination too. I’m glad no one was following me with a camera at that age, as well, but I got drunk and stupid in cheaper places. No paparazzi in the Dogtown bar in Golden, Colorado. Fifty cent mixed drinks? You bet.

How about 25 cent Scotch at the old Press Room bar in Las Cruces, NM? Suited my first-job lifestyle nicely.
At least all my gross transgressions (and I do mean some of them were gross) have no photographic evidence. Just the ones in my mind. And I try to get them out of there every chance I get.

That droopy eyelid thing seems to be going on in both pictures. You’d think a princess could afford to have that tightened or something.

I was intrigued by the droopy eyelid, too, and asked Google Images for some other pictures of Princess Bea. Both her eyes appear perfectly normal, suggesting our girl may be a princess, but pour enough booze into her and she’s just a common drunk.

Why does that ZZ Top song Pearl Necklace keep going through my head?

You know who’s got the droopy eyelid bigtime? Paris Hilton. That’s why she’s always tilting her head in that insipid pose. I bet Beatrice doesn’t have it as a chronic problem, or she would be doing that chin-dip even while plastered, a la P Hilty.

If Beatrice is now 19, I must have been in the UK in ’88, as she was 3 at the time. Well, apparently the royal yacht bearing the child was blown off course and had to put in somewhere other than the port of choice. I awoke to a tabloid that read:
“Well Blow Me, It’s Bea!!!”

As my late friend Jason put it, “I never went to bed with an ugly girl, but I woke up with quite a few.”

Bea did get the big teeth of her dad and the close together eyes of her mom, didn’t she? The barf on her face doesn’t help.
