It Could Only Happen To Me

Let's say that you are allergic to the new eyeliner you just purchased yesterday. And let's say this allergy manifests itself with burning, extremely swollen eyelids that have persisted for over 24 hours, long after the removal of the offensive eyeliner.

Hot, right?

Let's also say that your doctor recommends to ice your eye and take a Benedryl to help with the swelling.

Please, for the love of god, do not grab the same ice pack out of the fridge that your held over your lower face last week when you burned yourself on some jalapeno peppers.

Because you know there is still jalapeno remnants on that ice pack.

And now you've gone and gotten jalapeno in your eye that is ALREADY SWOLLEN AND PAINFUL.

You know, it's good I have a sense of humor about these things.

UPDATE: Things are looking up (albeit through still slightly puffy eyelids). I met with my orthopedist today and 1) I don't have to go see him anymore and 2) I can start wearing cute (albeit somewhat supportive) shoes again! HOLLA.

You always make me smile, no matter how bad my day has been.

O. M. G.

You need an industrial eye wash station in your home. Not sure where to purchase one of those.

Hope your eye[s] feels better soon!!!

OK, it's official: you've hit a clutzy patch. Stay away from knives, cars, sidewalks, anything hot, and...well, it would just be wise to stay inside your house for the next month. ;o)

Hope your eyes are feeling better soon!

Oh dear...that is definitely something I would do (luckily I've had no makeup allergies to date).

Also, I am slightly amused that "I can't be the only one" was directly followed by "this only happens to me."

Irony's a kicker, huh?

Jenn said...

At least this eye injury didn't involve a knife as a wine foil remover :)

Becky said...

You have the worst luck ever!!!
You better do some extra good things in order to boost your Karma levels! :-)

Haha well I wouldnt say the WORST luck ever ( I assume there are people out there who have it worse than a broken foot and a wonky eye!) ...but definitely not as good as usual. :-)
