Onward Thru The Fog

I was lazy last night about putting on the eye-patch that I'm supposed to sleep in for the next two weeks and ended up with the "transparent" tape that holds it to my face too much covering the area where the eye is located. Oh hell, I thought, what's there to see when I'm sleeping? True enough.

This morning I woke up with a pressing need to get to the bathroom! So, once again I was stumbling to the door and into the hall bathroom as a one-eyed man! There was no time to remove the tape! Ah, at last I could deal with the patch, though!

One state of hazy vision led to another, though. The sleepy sand and goo had piled up so much (and me not supposed to rub my eye). Shit! I took a shower, but you can't exactly put the fire hose in your eye, either, so that did minimum good! After I administered the three different eye drops (one drop, wait 5 minutes, then the next, etc.), and lots of blinking, I got to where I could see as good (or as poorly) as I'd been able to see the day before when the Big eye-patch was removed! A lot of work for little reward, but at least I wasn't as blind as I felt at first this morning!


  1. Are you absolutely certain that it REALLY WAS THE BATHROOM IN THE HALL? Or maybe it was the clothes hamper in the laundry room---You'll never tell.....!

  2. There IS a closet at the same end of the hall...

  3. Wow. You actually have a legitimate excuse to miss the toilet now;)

  4. Did you go in the shower?

    I'm sure things will improve over the next 2 or 3 days.

  5. Mushy, don't be obnoxious; the shower is in the tub and you know there would just be too much climbing involved with one eye! It's almost too much when I have two eyes open.


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
