No, actually it didn’t. It started with me putting my left contact lense in, and very swiftly removing it after it felt like a needle was happily making its way through my eyeball. I then got to work, and mercifully bit into what I assumed was a chocolate chip muffin, which in fact turned out to be a bran muffin. Nothing against bran muffins, but it’s a conspiracy I tell you. Today also happens to be day 1 of 2 of a HUGE audit, and when certain paperwork was called for, it wasn’t where it should have been. What should have taken 30 minutes to locate and sort, took almost 2 hours. Luckily, the auditors allowed 2 hours *wipes brow*. By this stage, my left contact lense had pretty much had enough for the day, and decided to have some nasty fun.
Today would be the day that I do not have my solution, lense container or new glasses with me. I tried so hard to hold on for as long as I could, but whatever was in my eye, underneath my contact lense, felt like it was burrowing further and further in every time that I moved my eye! I begged my colleagues for solution, but alas, none of them had. I eventually resorted to cleaning my lense in water (yes I know, baaaad) and then sticking it back in my eye. Who the hell knew that water could be so dry? I seriously think that my eye felt WORSE after rinsing my lense with water, than when it was in my eye with whatever was underneath it. I very VERY quickly removed my left lense again, and thought ‘oh crap’. I then remembered that I had my old glasses in the car, and then went and found 2 containers, filled them with water, and placed each contact lense into a container. Yes, I wrote L & R on each container 😉
Whether or not my lenses will still be wearable by the time I get home, is another story, for another day.
