This tale relates to Mid Teen, Teen's younger sister.
Mid Teen comes downstairs before school, uniform on etc. Boss Lady informs Mid Teen she is wearing mascara. Not allowed at school. Mid Teen denies all. Boss Lady is apparently mistaken.
Boss Lady repeats her assertion twice. Mid Teen says on both occasions that Boss Lady does not know what she is talking about. She clearly needs to go and lie down.
Boss Lady asks Mid Teen to come closer. Mid Teen reluctantly complies. Boss Lady suggests she spit in Mid Teen's eye to see if the mascara Mid Teen claims not to be wearing runs or not.
Mid Teen loses temper, admits she actually does have make up on. Storms upstairs to wash the stuff off in the five minutes before she has to leave to catch bus...
