The Tea Dance - Three Word Wednesday

Three Word Wednesday where you write something using the three prompt words.
This week's words are  ... Hint, Lust and Sheen


 He looked in the mirror.
"You handsome devil you!"
He still had that twinkle in his eye, a hint of boyish charm that still shone through.
He coiffured his pepper grey hair into shape then applied just a touch of gel to give it a glorious silver sheen.
He checked the mirror once more, raised his eyebrows in the middle and gave one of his best Clark Gable smiles.
"Yep Ted, you're gonna create some serious lust in the ladies eyes down at the tea dance tonight!"

I love the way you only hint at "Ted's" age and paint a picture of a geriatric Charlie Sheen. I lust over your writing ability.
