"Teck-mac-mah-ya-con " is a magical spell.
Say these magic words when opening a powder box, and you can turn into anything you want.
When I was 6, I opened my mother's powder box and put on lipstick.
It was more red than I imagined. Surprised, I put the cap back on quickly.
The tip broke off.
The things I felt when this happened, it all comes back to me when I look at my 5 year old daughter's nervous expressions/actions.
Soon enough, my daughter will open my powder box.
She will fly away from my hands someday.
Just like magic, she can be anything she wants to be.
Also, my mother, who definitely noticed the broken lipstick, did not say anything to me.
