As most of you know, I'm pretty darn blind. I can't see more than a few centimeters in front of me without my glasses or contacts. It isn't really a bad thing, but it can get kind of annoying to have to lean forward and squint just to see the alarm clock in the middle of the night.
Over the years, I've found at least a couple of good things about having to wear contacts. For one, cutting onions doesn't seem to bother my eyes, and for another, if for whatever reason your eyes are red and teary and you don't want people to know the real reason, you can always blame the lenses.
Yesterday, I found another. As I was putting on my mascara, I guess I was being a little over-zealous and ended up touching the brush right to my eye. Now in most people, this would produce much tearing, eye rubbing and perhaps even swearing. Not me- in fact, I didn't even feel it and didn't realize it had happened until I looked a little closer and saw the black mark on my contact lens.
Unfortunately, it was waterproof mascara. So if anyone knows how to get that last little speck of black off of my contact, let me know.
