Pet Please #48: Eyelashes

This pet please is in the same vein as #13: Finding Your Chapstick, in that it’s a bad situation that turns out fine.

I don’t know if this happens to other people, but my eyelashes fall into my eyes all the time. I don’t wear contacts, so the eyelashes land directly on my eye. I generally deal with this issue in one of three ways:

  1. Strip naked and run around screaming.
  2. Check to see if the eyelash isn’t all the way in my eye so I can easily extract it.
  3. Flush out my eye with water (I know, you’re supposed to use special fluid, but if you don’t wear contacts, you don’t own that fluid)

The point is, it can be a really annoying situation to dig through your eye to find the guilty eyelash. It just feels wrong to touch your eyeball with your finger. Thus I’m always pleasantly surprised when you can look in the mirror, spot the eyelash right away, and remove it with ease. I always feel like I’ve gotten away with something when that happens.
