Eye Made A Big Mistake
Coming home from a long work day, Ralph went straight upstairs to remove his lenses. I knew something was terribly wrong when, from downstairs, I heard him shrieking. Okay, more like a really loud, angry, sort of screeching. I ran upstairs, fast as a bullet, fearing for his eyes and my life. He had bypassed the new unopened bottle of solution and dug into my bathroom bag. His thinking, "Why open a new bottle when there is an opened bottle around here somewhere. Must use every last drop."
While I am thinking, "Why be conservative with stupid contact solution? OPEN THE NEW BOTTLE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU! It's okay to have two open solution bottles at the same time!!"
Ack! Eeeks! Oooops!
He innocently lubed-up his eyeball with Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum! It was a modern-day “I Love Lucy” episode and what I would have given for a diverting knock on the door from Fred and Ethel. I had some splain’n to do! I felt terrible! Terrible! I took the saying “You always hurt the ones you love” to a whole new level.
