Dark circles!!!

“Helen, wake up. You’re going to be late for work.” Kelly cried while shaking me.

“ummm...just one more minute.” I whimpered and changed the side on the sofa.

“Okay.... okay, I’m up. See....“, I huffed while getting up.

“Oh...you have dark circles.“, she cried.

“what?“, I shot back.
