Blink of an eye

Have you ever sometimes blinked in such a way that you fold your contact in half and force it to go up behind your eyelid? And then when you stick your finger in there to fish it out you realize that you've got vindaloo sauce on your finger? Which feels like what you've always imagined being Maced would feel like?
(Side note...just looked up the ingredients for vindaloo seasoning...they include nutmeg, ginger, turmeric, MACE, cloves, anise and cardamom.)
Then you run to the bathroom and wash your hands and your contact pops out and lands on the mirror while you try to decontaminate your eyeball? Which washes all of your makeup off of one side of your face? And because you are on a business trip to your company's headquarters, you OF COURSE run right into the new Operations Manager as you wander around with your contact pinched between your fingers , mascara down to your chin asking complete strangers if they have some  saline solution you can borrow? Because asking folks you don't know to borrow their toiletries isn't awkward AT ALL. Then finally you just go back to the bathroom and pop the contact in your mouth for a sec (I know!) before putting it back in your eye? 
Just me?


  1. Not what I thought this was going to be about at. all. :-). Glad you got your contact back in, and you didn't need the makeup, anyway!!

  2. Is it wrong of me to say "I'm so sorry" to you while laughing myself silly over the description here? Because if it is wrong, well, I don't want to be right.

  3. Sigh. If I can't stop embarrassing myself, at least I can blog about it
