something weird about my face

It turns red every evening between 5pm and 7pm. I'm not even kidding. Like blushing, but concentrated in my nose and cheeks. 5pm is also when I start drinking gin out of a paper bag under my desk. Do you think it's a coincidence? I'm kidding about the drinking. Anyway, I pointed out the puffy redness to the Red Eye makeup lady and she said "you have a tan from California!" and I said "I don't actually! My face just turns red sometimes!" I should have gone with the tan thing. Anyway, I bring this up because I'm in full Rudolph mode right now. If you saw me and you were in a car, you would slam on the brakes.

just stop thinking about me, and the problem should go away.

People with anxiety blush when they even think about going into a social situation. It's also possible you have an allergic reaction to some you come in contact with at the same time every evening.

Sounds like a mild form of rosacea. Did I just teach you a new word?

I think Hugh is right... better try different makeup or something.... Have you considered applying ice to your face before the time you begin turning red?? Would it be possible to get a video of this?
