If you’ve seen me weeping at any point in the last month or so don’t worry, nothing’s wrong, it’s just my eyeball. I noticed the problem when we went out to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I’ve had the occasional eye irritation from time to time to so I figured it would go away. But it didn’t … for a month. I finally called the optometrist on Friday and made and appointment, and of course Saturday my eye cleared up. I kept my appointment just in case and went in today … he wasn’t amused …
Optometrist: So, this has been hurting for a month?
Me: Yes. It’s been really, really painful but thought it would go away but decided a month was my limit.
Opto: You do realise 3 or 4 days should’ve been your limit right?
Me: Well, I had started looking for children’s pirate costumes so I could use the eye patch and figured that would make me feel better.
Opto: Really? You decided that was a better option than making an appointment?
Me: I think it would’ve helped, no?
Opto: What was your plan for the rest of the costume?
Me: Hmmm, I didn’t really think that far … I could’ve worn the hat.
Opto *head shaking*
I think Rob still wants me to search for a pirate costume though – he must be really concerned about my eye.
