you know what's a pain in the ass?

when your contacts decide they've had it, and they mount a rebellion against your eyeballs. at about 9:15 in the morning. and you don't have a spare pair. and you won't be home until 8:00 tonight.

ouch. ow. argh.

A very similar thing happened to me this morning, which is further evidence that the world is comspiring against us.

Did you know that we also apparently owned metal detectors at about the same time too? Maybe our lives are somehow parallel, but only in trivial ways.

mine was orange, and from (i believe) radio shack.

if yours was either of the above, i think our life parallels are far from trivial! we should pitch it to a network or something :)

You have my sympathy. What I really hate is when my contacts go all haywire and make my eyes practically swell shut. They like to do this when I'm driving on the expressway at 80 mph.

i'm completely serious that mine did the same thing this morning too.

must be the pollen count.
or satan.

i had one space contact in my purse.
uh, wicked helpful. for a pirate.

Ick. I hate when that happens. It often happens to me when I'm on a long drive, at night, alone. OR when I have no spares and it's only the morning and I won't be home until late.

Shouldn't contact lens technology be better by now? Then again, I'm too cheap to buy anything but Focus monthlies...

I have what was about 7 months ago, the latest contact. So good that the cleaner I was using wasn't really cleaning them anymore. My doc explained it, something about being good at staying moist. So now I think they only really last 1 week when they should last 2. But when they're fresh, they rawk!

Mine was from Radio Shack, however was not orange. I have to admit, I'm a little jealous.

I am such a contact abuser, that I have these super crazy contacts that I put in and can leave in for a month, without ever taking them out. Still, I often leave them in for more than a month at a time.

Jayne-how did you end up with only one spare contact? Did you maybe loan one to a pirate?
