My own personal blonde moment.

Today I came home from church sick. Nothing to worry about, I just felt really crappy. I managed to lay on the couch and read my RS lesson that I teach on 3rd Sundays, but I was not able to fall asleep. I figured rest was just as good though.

Later in the afternoon, I was feeling tired and decided to go lay down. I slept for a while and when I got up, I realized that I forgot to take out my contacts. (This is the 2nd time in about 10 days, I'm sure I will learn soon.) Anyway, I went into the bathroom to take them out and the first one came out really easily. I stood in front of the mirror to take the second one out and it didn't come out as easily. Right then the phone rang, so I went to answer it. I talked on the phone for about 5 minutes with my vision half blurred. I went back to the bathroom to take out my second contact but I couldn't get it out. I put in tons of eye drops and the little thing was plastered to my eyeball. I was getting a little bit nervous and I was praying that I could get that contact out, and practically swearing that I'd never wear them again if I got the dumb thing out of my eye. Then my phone rang again. It was Ken, I told him about my calamity, he laughed at me. Back to the bathroom I went, I looked in the mirror to get a good look at that contact. Here comes the embarrassing part...I was trying to get my contact out of the wrong eye. Apparantly my right eye has a ring around the iris that looks like a contact. When I tried to take a contact out of my left eye, it was amazing how easily it came out.

Questions I ask myself now, as my right eye is still bloodshot and sore 3 1/2 hours later...

Why didn't I notice I could see really well while trying to get my 'contact' out of my eye?
Why would I be taking out the contact out of my right eye last?
Was I once a blonde???

I know...special


  1. Hahaha. My eyes won't stop watering!

  2. thanks for "leap blogging' my blog. (i like that phrase. i may have to steal it. ) My eye balls hurt just thinking about it. I have major eye-touching issues, (why i don't have contacts). that and papercuts. yeah, i am a wus.

  3. Its cause you were looking at a mirror, using two eyes to focus on one object. Had you covered each eye you'd have noticed ^.^ Here's a trick, make a triangle with your hands and place a small object far away in the center, now close one eye... open it, and then close the other. The object will move, but only with one eye. Weird huh?
