But don't even discuss touching my eyes. I think it started with with movie "Fire in the Sky." It's about alien abduction. In one scene, they show some of the experiments the alleged aliens performed on their victims. It involves the guy's head held still, eyelid pried open, and a very, very long needle. Makes my eyes water just thinking about it.
Then there was that kid in my high school...he left his contact lenses in for three weeks straight -- this was before you were supposed to do that ('cuz I'm old) -- and had to have them surgically removed. It's one of the big reasons why I'm very grateful for my good eyesight, which does not require me to wear glasses, much less contacts. Also why I don't encourage the Man to trade in his specs. I don't think I could handle watching him put in contacts and take them out. Ugh...shivers my spine when I imagine that. But with two kids in glasses and most likely a third one, I don't think I'll dodge that bullet much longer.
Okay, so what's my point? Before I go on and on about trying to take better care of myself, make more of an effort, blah blah blah, I'll cut to the chase: I got an eyelash curler. I've never used one before. Never had one used on me, either. Not even in the infamous Glamour Shots. And frankly, I have no idea how to use it.
Do I use the curler after mascara or before? Maybe between coats? How long do I hold it there? Seriously, how long? After a few seconds, my eye starts to twitch and I begin to wonder if I might accidentally rip off all my lashes. Someone please tell me that can't actually happen...I think I'd rather be abducted by aliens than be lashless.
