You Dropped Something

Posted by Michelle on Saturday, September 25, 2010
What do you do when the person opposite you has something out of place?

Food in the teeth, bad breath, armpit forest, stray thread, a hang nail... Or my personal favourite: the runaway fake eyelash.

I was on campus one day sitting under a tree, when a girl sat across the table from me. She started making conversation and somewhere between the state of the girls' bathroom and how much I spend on lunch, one of her fake eyelashes started trying to escape. I'm a starer. So I stared. I thought, "Should I say something??" But she just kept on talking, so I figured she'd go fix it or something... She didn't. As the conversation progressed I tried to look around me and focus on other things, but my eyes always found the runaway lash :|

Neither here nor there, but at this point I told myself that I'm happy I have naturally full lashes and don't have to resort to such things, but as for her lash? Well, it blew away. Guess it had a mind of its own. It didn't get very far though, it fell to the table. You know that look? The one people get when something embarrassing happens to them but they don't want call any attention to it and they wonder if anyone saw that and you can see these thoughts travel across their faces?? She had that look... and for some reason I thought it was a bright idea to address it...

Me: Are you gonna get that?
Lashless Girl: [nervously] Get what?
Me: Um, your eyelash? it's on the table...
I just couldn't let that go could I?
Lashless Girl: [fiddling with her hands] Huh? What do you mean?
I should have really given up at this point, she really didn't seem to want to address this.
Me: You can pick it up, your eyelash, it's okay, I'm not bothered.


After that little exchange she didn't say much, just kind of sat there, looking around and avoiding eye contact. She told me she was leaving soon after and she left the eyelash. Sad thing is: I almost called her back for it.
