244. The Horrible Face (1) 

Mitchell was looking for the Instant Dry Milk Ralphs. He had started buying dry milk two ago. Packaged in a box weighing only 1½ , dry milk tastes and costs the same as nonfat milk. Plus, it is a lot lighter carry than liquid milk. He couldn’t find it the aisle with the unrefrigerated soy milk, so walked to the next aisle.

Just as Mitchell up the next aisle, he almost collided with pushing a shopping cart toward him. Mitchell’s eyes wide, and then he quickly looked away. Was person starring in a monster movie? She was ugliest person he had ever seen. He couldn’t believe that this was a real person—she had be an actor still in make-up.

She had all over her face! Warts—too many to count—covered forehead, cheeks, nose, and neck. The warts were same color as her skin, and each one about the size of a pencil eraser. When was a kid, he thought that the Halloween of a witch with just one wart on tip of her nose was ugly. But this was hideous--even more repulsive than people with bad or with severe facial burns.
