Practically Perfect in Every Way

giphy1_xokqh9When I was little, despite the fact that this is one of my favorite movies in the world, I never really understood why Marry Poppins did this small action. After all, her face is obviously very sooty already from shooting up the chimney, chasing after Jane and Michael. Why would she use her magic to find powder her nose even more black?  It wasn’t until recently that I rewatched the movie that I realised what this is. A small,witty act of sheer confidence. A way of saying “I’m going to work with what I have and still be practically perfect in every way.” I know, Marry Poppins is an extremely vain character and they did this to accentuate the fact but really, what would happen if everyone was a bit more shamelessly bold? Supercalifragilisticexpialidociousness.
