The stranger

Filed under: Uncategorized — attaikede @ 3:28 pm

I had an eyelash in my eye that stayed put despite some eye rubbing. i went and stuck my head really close to the mirror so i could rub my eye and get the eyelash out.

Only half of my face was in the mirror. My one eye that was looking in the mirror at itself could only see itself, and a bit of my eyebrow. That’s it.

At some point, while I was rubbing my eye in the mirror, i started noticing how brown my own eye was, and suddenly had a flash of confusion and panic about whose eye it was I was staring at!

I guess that’s similar to that feeling you get when you repeat the same word over and over and over again. it starts to sound foreign after a while.

Obviously I’d spent a leeeetle too much time admiring my own eye.

  1. Lol, that is funny, I have done that too! It is interesting though, the little things that we never pay attention to and when we do, how they completely perplex us!
