My right eye socket is inflamed. It started as a large corner ‘bump’ and spread across the upper eyelid, circumventing the eye. The whole socket is swollen now and my eye is half shut. I look like a very bad portrait drawn in art class; the asymmetry if obvious.
Someone suggested I tell people I am the victim of domestic violence, but the lack of a bruise is a giveaway.
To prevent further geeks a gawking ( and to assist my vanity) I should get an eye patch. A black eyepatch can be a bit sexy looking.
I can pass myself off as a pirate
or a god (I already have the ring)
or advertise men’s shirts (oh Freud!)
By the time I find a patch to purchase the swelling may be gone. I sure hope so. Meanwhile I am walking around looking like Quasimodo; it is not a pretty sight.
A fine way to make my Honolulu debut !
