Though my airline security incident (detailed in my previous post) was inconvenient, it was not as costly as my most recent mishap will turn out to be.
You see, after I got out of the shower this morning, I put in my contacts, rinsed out my contact case, then dried my face with a towel. Just like any other ordinary morning. As I set the towel down, however, I realized that I could only see out of one eye. Hmm. My right contact had somehow disappeared into thin air! It must have somehow popped out and gotten rinsed down the drain. Argh.
So here I am, stuck wearing my glasses for the entire rest of the convention. Those of you who know me recognize that I usually avoid wearing my glasses whenever possible, as I hate having to look through them. But, it’s better than the alternative, peering through my left eye while completely blind in the right.
(Unless I had an eye patch, then I could just claim to be a pirate! Yarrrr!)
