If there was one thing Femi disliked greatly about modern fashion, it was the fixing of eyelashes by women. For him, it made women looked like cats. And cats were just not Femi's thing. He could deal with long nails, red lipstick, wigs, etc but not eyelashes.
It was, therefore, not surprising that Femi carefully settled for a conservative lady, Sarah. She was not the flamboyant, excessive make up-wearing lady. Just the perfect woman for Femi.
But a strange event happened on the day of their wedding, one that annoyed Femi for a few weeks. When the priest had concluded the marital vows before the cheering crowd, he said, "Young man, you may now kiss the bride."
Femi smiled. The golden moment had come. As he lifted the veil off the face of his bride, he noticed that her eyelashes were longer than usual. He paused momentarily. The new eyelashes were as long and sharp as the blades of a rake. Femi considered withdrawing his kiss but it was too late. So, he went ahead. Although he would get angry throughout the wedding reception, Sarah had had her way on the day it mattered most.
