I have rogue eyelashes. They grow in weird directions and attack my eyes in the middle of the night. When I woke up this morning (you were on my mi-i-i-i-ind), my left eye was tearing up like crazy and it was kinda swollen. Putting my contacts in was impossible, and it didn’t get better after a shower, so rather than fight it all day long, I worked from home and made an appointment to see my eye doctor (who is the wife of my dentist – they share a practice). She said my eye was irritated because my eyelashes are poking (and scratching) my cornea (again – this happened about six months ago), and there really isn’t anything I can do about it other than see her every six months or so. She can pluck eyelashes I can’t even see. I don’t get how this happens overnight. What about yesterday?
Also, I feel a little like a wuss for staying home from work because of my eyelashes. A lot like a wuss.
