The culprit

This morning I woke up and went straight to the mirror to pluck a few stray eyebrow hairs. Unfortunately for me, my fingers were slippery and the stupid tweezers slipped and smacked me in the eye ball. I couldn't open my eye for over an hour. Good news... I'm not blind. I went to the doctor and apparently sliced my cornea all the way across from top to bottom. As soon as she looked at it she said, " Oh WOW. That must have hurt." I don't like to hear that from the eye doctor. It was all good news except that I can't wear my contacts for a week. So I will either be wearing my stupid glasses from high school or one contact. I tried the one contact thing earlier and it really threw my balance off. I might just have to let my eyebrows grow in because I'm scared to touch them again.

Okay that had to hurt. I can't stand an eyelash in my eye, I can't imagine a pair of tweezers! I hope your okay.

Yikes! Makes my eyes water thinking about it. I once caught a fingernail in the eye playing basketball in a swimming pool, scratched my cornea, so painful. Wax for you from now on!
