Applying Makeup

Grandma was in the bathroom putting on makeup under the watchful eyes of her granddaughter. She had done this many times before. 

After she applied her lipstick and started the leave, her granddaughter said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toliet paper goodbye." 

I will probably never put on lipstick again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper again.
