In which I Learn my Lesson for Snoring


See that? That’s what happens when your snoring annoys your husband and he whacks you in face.

Actually, that’s a joke because I don’t snore. Really. And, Joe didn’t hit me. I don’t think. We have no idea what happened. On Saturday, Joe said, “Hey, look over there,” which of course made me say, “No, I’m not looking over there” because every time I look over there, Joe does something to me or takes something I have.

But, when I did look to the side, Joe saw that half of my eyeball was bloody. I told him he should have said, “Hey, look over there because your eyeball is a bloody mess.” That would have worked for me.

We chalked it up to a broken blood vessel and went on with our day. That night, though, Joe noticed what appeared to be a scratch on my eyeball. So, yesterday we went to our optometrist to see what he thought. It didn’t hurt like a cut on the eye normally would, but if it was a cut we didn’t want it to get infected.

The verdict: a broken blood vessel with pooled blood that could resemble a cut. It should go away in the next 3-5 weeks. Until then, whenever someone asks me what happened to my eye, I’ll get to say I learned my lesson for snoring. 🙂

    One: you do snore
    Two: I only take candy from you.
    Three: Maybe if you shared your candy, I wouldn’t have to take it.
    Four: I do love you, bloody eye and all. 🙂
