A for Alphabet Eyelashes
Alphabet eyelashes - why not?
Perfect for the starter Blog for Blogging from A-Z April 2012 Challenge. Nothing like some tomfoolery on April first.

When you haven't seen a particular school friend for many years, the immediate response is to check out physical appearance, while desperately trying to recall their appearance at last sighting, before going on to small talk to find out if they are still working or retired etc.
You mentally tick off a check-list.
Hair - style, thinning, receding, colour, roots; face - nip & tuck, nose jobs, lifts or best guess as you wonder if the jaw line was as chiseled as you remembered it; neck - the degree of turkey waddle (compared to your own) or the lack of it.
Travelling down to the trunk - Hmmm...generally thicker than before especially around the middle; wearing monochrome loose fitting clothes but compensated by branded accessories - a Louis Vuitton handbag, Omega diamond-rimmed Ladymatic and Farragamo pumps. QED: Well turned out to an Old Girls' reunion luncheon.
