Chickens and crows

At the same time, my husband sounded more hesitant than he had a few months ago. Quite understandable: €10,000 euro (it was 60,000 French francs back then, according to Joan’s account of what she paid) is not chicken feed. Chicken feed for crow’s feet?  Hmm. I wrote my friends Angela and Jane about my pending appointment. Angela’s reaction was, “It’s a status symbol for women of our age. But it will hurt.” Jane’s was, “You look great without it. But it’s no big deal if you go ahead.”
