Today just so happened to be one of those days, that had a slight stir about it. I decided to take the girls out this afternoon, even though I knew in the back of my mind, that I should have stayed home. Our outting pushed back dinner, no big deal right? Well, kind of because we had to be out of the house by 6pm, to make a very special, 8th Grade Graduation in Boulder.
With that said, there was a bit of a mishap right between the water boiling and the macaroni being placed in the pot.
The girls were running around the upstairs, through the bathroom into the hallway, into my bedroom and back through the bathroom. Round and around. I envisioned someone falling or hitting their head on the doorway. I was bumped a few times.
All the while, I was curling my hair with a very hot curling iron. Then out of sheer dumbness, I started to put on mascara. Don't ask me why, I wear mascara about once a month, I guess with May ending in a couple of days, I thought I should get my mascara quota in for the month.
Yes, girls running, screaming. Yes, water is definitely boiling by this point. And yes, I started to apply mascara.
Apparently I was functioning at about 75% of normal mental capacity, because I was disappointed in the eyelash curling job that didn't take affect on my left eye. So after putting my mascara on, I used the eyelash curler.
Please don't try this at home.
Sj stopped running, just in enough time to bump my leg while I was using the eyelash curler. I lost my balance. In that moment, that little ill fated moment, the curler came away from my eye in a forceful manner. I felt like I had just waxed my eyelashes. I opened the curler, that was closed when it left my eye, to find it full. Full of my precious, fine, never had enough in the first place, eyelashes.
Not good. Not pretty.
But please get a good laugh from this photo, if my husband was in town, I would have him take a better photo than this. Yes, my eyes are hazel.
Now my only question is, how the hell long does it take for eyelashes to grow back? Guess I need to go with a sweeping bang look.
