After a slap to the face, would a cold wet cloth or ice pack on the face help the redness to fade away faster?
(FYI, the blow will not be hard enough to leave bruising or anything, but the character wants the redness to go away before morning when they have to be seen in public.)
alternate question for fellow NaNo writers: how goes your writing? are you keeping up with word count/behind/ahead? (my answer: i am behind but did finally hit 10K last night)
alternate question for non-Nanos: attempting to google this answer before coming here brought up results of spas advertising a "face-slapping" skin treatment. would you ever try this? (my answer: no way.)
