Lashing Out...Literally

Don't be in a rush
Getting ready in the morn
Mistakes will happen

Early on Thursday
I was applying makeup
Should not have hurried

While curling lashes
Darren was brushing his teeth
I leaned over him

Should have thought a bit
Knowing he would raise his head
Alas, I did not

Sure enough, he spat
As I looked in the mirror
Now my right eye's odd

The inner corner
Has the lashes one expects
Outer lashes gone

Not really painful
The extraction was so fast
Wish it had been brows!

(Sparing you all a picture. Imagine an eye half lashed, and that's mine!)
After Lent concludes, be sure to join in the fun at Catholic Teacher Musings' Bad Haiku Friday!

Oh no!!! That's terrible. I hope they come back quickly (or you find someone to put false ones on soon)! My eyes hurt just thinking about it!
