So, I’ve worn eyelashes every day since grade 10. Doesn’t matter where I was – school, dance class, even the beach. I was skilled in the art of showering and swimming without getting my lashes wet, and trust me, it WAS an art. I’m at the beach on day, with a full face of makeup, tanning on the edge of a dock. A random, flirty stranger thought it would be funny if him and a friend picked up and threw me and one of my friends into the water. Upon being picked up by this stranger, I calmly – but firmly – assured him it would not be in his best interest to get my lashes wet by tossing me into the lake. He laughed it off and threw me in without a second thought. I rose from the water like the chick from The Ring, lashes hanging half off, mascara running down my face. I walked past the perpetrator, toweled my face off, removed my eyelashes and tucked them away into a safe place – and proceeded to run full force toward this foolish, foolish man. At age 17, I pushed a fully grown man into a lake, gave him the finger, packed my things and walked away, like a boss.
