My Eyes!

I can be pretty stupid some times.

Take the other morning for example, when I went to put in my contacts.

First, let me backtrack to the morning before, which happened to be the beginning of the month. That’s when I change my contacts. Old ones in the trash; fresh new ones in my eyes.

However, that morning, I left the old ones in the case, thinking I would dispose of them that night.

But that night, I was feeling really tired and had a headache so I just whipped out my contacts and went to bed.

I didn’t realize my error until the next morning when I opened up my contact case. Floating in the saline solution where two sets of contacts. My fresh new ones were being corrupted by the scuzzy old ones.

Le sigh.

I had two choices:

I could try to differentiate between the two sets. That would involve squinting at each one to see what they looked like and putting them to see if they itched my eye right away. That would take some time and the chance that I put the old ones back in and spend the day rubbing my eyes.

I went with choice number 2. I just opened up another new pack and went about my business.
