This is about as Mundane and Pointless as you could ever hope for.
Here’s a picture of me last weekend.
Here’s a picture of me this weekend.
Here’s a picture of me this weekend in a hatmore appropriate to the situation.
The Bible says “If thy right eye offend thee pluck it out” but I decided to make like a politician and pay to have it covered up instead. It’s not as bad as it looks: it’s a minor corneal problem caused by- well, honestly not sure what the cause is, I’m guessing something to do with Jews and Freemasons and shrubbery. It’s been hella-painful but it’s relatively minor and the bandages are to come off today or tomorrow, so I’m really not whining too much, but DAMN! Whoever thought the temporary loss of one eye would be such a pain in the ass! The loss of depth perception, the lack of peripheral vision, the convoluted way you have to turn your head to read, etc… I really do not understand what Sammy Davis Jr. half saw in it.
But the main reason posting is this: I’ve had two people tell me, since I’ve had the bandaging and the eye patch (the bandages are to hold the dressing and the eyepatch to block out light) “You look… kinda hot in that”. Weird, but one of them was kind of cute.
So I can understand people experimenting with being one eyed for a weekend like I have, but not those who do it as a full-time lifestyle choice. (And I still think Helen Keller was lying- probably saw and talked as good as everybody else when nobody else was around- all blind, all deaf, all the time? That’s just blatant overkill.)
So I’m trying to decide whether to lose the corneal ulcer but keep the bandaging or eyepatch. Or maybe just the patch. Thoughts?
