Amna had always been a formidable young woman, never afraid to speak her mind and tell people off. Her husband was an agreeable fellow who soon learnt that it was much better to remain on her right side.
Amna was on a strict diet to lose the weight she had gained after their first child. One day as she stood surveying herself in the mirror, she asked her husband “Do I look thinner?”
Her husband was just contemplating how to answer when his phone rang. He thanked the heavens, motioned to his wife and left the room, hoping that the conversation would be forgotten when he returned.
