The Girl with Sparkling Skin

While in high school, I dated a girl whose skin sparkled.  In sunlight, her face and arms glittered like found treasure.  And she was pretty.  Prettier than you might expect for the likes of me.
I thought I was quite lucky.  Me: the guy with a pretty girl whose skin sparkled.
Naturally, the girl with sparkling skin left me for another boy.  She broke my heart.  Only after our breakup did I come to realize that her sparkling skin was a cheap illusion caused by something in her body lotion.
