For those of you I irritate...you know who you are
...I am giving you a chance to laugh at me. Here is my true story ~
Tuesday evening I went into our garage to get my dogs their food. I placed the bowls of food into my left hand and grabbed a beer out of our soda/beer fridge. As I was closing the door somehow the bottle fell straight down onto the concrete floor causing an explosion!
The bottle split in half with the top half, cap and all, hitting my right eye like a missle instantly! It knocked me for a loop to say the least. Realizing I was bleeding I grabbbed a towel out of my batroom right around the corner and applied pressure to the wound. I cleaned up the mess...thinking this might make the boo-boo go away
As I went upstairs I heard Angie say "dinner's ready"...she was already seated at the table...I sat down and mumbled something about "we may need to hurry and eat, it could be a long evening at urgent care" as I removed the towel from my head. She looks at me and says..."hummm...where is your eye?" I tell her I think it is under the swelling but the last I saw it, it was crossed! She tells me to eat my chicken and to keep applying pressure, so compassionate she is. She finishes her dinner, grabs a book and her crossword puzzle from the paper and says "get in the car, you need stitches."
I leave urgent care a few hours later with 4 stitches just below my eyebrow and a patch over my eye, with a note to call the specialist in the morning...they had already conntacted her about my "crossed" eye.
Things are about as good as they can be at the moment. I have a real sore swollen eye...totally black and blue. The bottle caused a deep cut near my eye and put cuts across my eyeball. The doctor says that I will probably have some scar tissue that may cause some blurriness in my vision...so looking forward to that..
Things could have been much worse. The crossed eye I saw was from the swelling...the crossed eye the urgent care doctor was trying to explain was not a crossed eye but crosses "across" my eye.
To answer your first two questions ~ #1 NO! I was not drunk...yet...it was going to be my second beer and #2 NO! I am not switching to cans...can't stand beer in cans. I did put a rug under the door of the fridge, maybe that will help ease another explosion!
There is my story...funny...not funny ha-ha...but funny...
