What is that fixture I see on your nose, asked hubby looking down at the flashing gem that adorned by nose. I noticed that his normally inscrutable face for once bore an expression of ulter dislike and disapproval. Though I anticipated such reaction to my new acquisition, I never expected him to make it so blatantly obvious.
Well, I feel there is nothing wrong with ‘that’ piece of jewellery, in fact, it has a lovely sparkle, he said emphasising ‘that’.
Yes, I knew you would love the sparkle, I said, feeling happy that he was able to admire the diamond.
Don’t you think the diamond stud gives a facelift, I asked enthusiastically.
He scrutinised my face for a long time but no answer came.
Instead of hedging, why don’t you simply say whether it does or doesn’t give a facelift?
O.K. If you insist on an answer, here it is, he said, Yes. It does, if the nose is acquiline, pointed and shapely but no, it does not give a facelift if the nose is blunt, flat and….
I chose to leave hubby alone to complete the sentence.
