Oh My, I gotta Sty, In My Eye

The body is a weird thing sometimes. Or maybe, more accurately, what happens to the body is a weird thing.  I woke up Tuesday morning with my right eye swollen.  Well, not my eye but the baggy area that exists under the eye.  It went from looking like a polite overnight case to an entire family’s vacation luggage.

It looked like there was a ‘head’ on my lower eye lid… kinda like a zit?  So when I got home from work I asked my wife to see if she could pluck that sucker outta there.  I had hoped that doing this would help unpack some of the baggage.  It actually accomplished two things: my wife got the heebie jeebies trying to get her nails that close to my eye and following this delicate but savage surgical procedure, my eye looked worse.

This morning when I looked in the mirror it appeared that the family had bought half of Orlando’s souvenirs and packed them into the carry-on under my eye.

Don’t worry though, I have a great comment for those people who give me a sympathetic smile and ask me what happened.

My wife punched me.

Conversation over and back to work…. and everyone is now afraid of my wife.

    Keep up this kind of post and she will (punch you) and you will (be afraid of her). I offer marriage counseling. 🙂

      Can you show me how to throw a good right hook? Or at least how to hold my hands to protect my face? 😉

      OHH.. I bet you meant counseling in the way that we sit down and talk it out. 🙂

      I am waiting for my wife to read this post to see if she REALLY gives me a swat. Maybe I can keep it a secret.

    Brave – very brave!

    Do you enjoy sleeping on the couch?

      uh.. actually, I can go to the spare bedroom 🙂

      I am only brave because she may not read it. And that would make me lucky.
