The Eyes Have It

So I have this little eye infection I may have mentioned before. It is taking forever to go away. I have to put hot compresses on it and then drops. The compresses don't stay hot for very long so you have to do it several times in a row over the sink. The water is so hot it almost burns you but it doesn't last for more than a few seconds. I stand over the bathroom sink and that is awkward too.
Then come the drops. You know how when you pull out your lower lid there is a little trough? Well, the trick is to get the drops in there and then not to let it leak right out by, say, closing your eye...or accidentally, tipping your head...or the drop is too big and just floods right over the eyelid. It is really annoying and I have had to learn some tricks to make it work.
First, I can't blink for a while. I have to keep my head pretty straight. I have to keep pulling out the lid so the drop stays in the trough. But not too much or it just drips down my cheek. It is quite a show.
Anyway, I appreciate my two eyes especially since this ad with all the people with one big eye in the middle of their foreheads. Have you seen that one?? It is totally disgusting. I don't even know what the ad is about. It just makes my tummy churn.
There used to be this cartoon on television called Futurama. The girl on that show had only one big eye but she was a toon, not a real person. That was bad enough.
The one big eye thing is nothing new and this is not the first time it turned my stomach. Remember the CYCLOPS??? He was a monster in Jason and the Argonauts. I was so scared of it in that movie! Of course, he roasted sailors and ate them for dinner so he was doubly frightening. Maybe I never got quite over my fear.
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. If you only have one does that work. Is it just a bigger window?? Or do you only get to see half of someone's soul when they look at you?
On those ads, I don't know if they blink or not. I always fast forward through the commercial. If I saw that I think I would be even more freaked out than I am!
The giraffe heads, the Teddy bear head and the Carrying your head around ads were bad enough but this is the limit for me. Stop with the CG of our bodies already!!!!!!! If you have to CG stick to Transformers or Spiderman and leave the television ads out of it...................please.
