well, that's one way to wake up  

I am rarely fully aware when I am first forced to wake against my will, but I registered the sound of my cell phone/alarm falling to the floor and continuing to vibrate in a most annoying fashion. I reflexively went after it, only, since I was very drowsy and my eyes were closed, my depth perception was way off. That my lids were still sealed with sleep turned out to be most fortunate, for I gouged my left ocular apparatus quite thoroughly on the corner of my end table. I don't know if you can tell, but I managed to scrape right along my eyelashes as well, so it looks a bit like I'm wearing scarlet eyeliner.

Hence, my morning sounded somewhat like this:

Anne: ::uses profane words and REALLY MEANS IT::
Anne: IS IT BLEEDING!? ::touches it::
Anne: OW! ::PROFANITY!:: Can't tell!
Anne: IS IT BLEEDING!? ::touches it::
Anne: OW! HELLO?!
Anne: IS IT BLEEDING!? ::turns on light::

When I went to work, everyone delighted in asking me what the other guy looked like, or if I got into a fight with the cat. At first I told them that I punched myself in the face with a hardcover book, but then some of them actually believed me, so I decided to just tell the truth. At least the swelling's gone down quite a bit, so I can almost fully open my eye once again.

O.O My gosh!! Can you see all right (aside from the swelling)?

Remarkably, yes! I just couldn't open my eye more than halfway until the swelling went down. I congratulate my poor eyelid for doing its job and protecting ye olde eyeball.

Ooh, I hope you're ok!

And if I were you, I'd say "6 ft tall, about 220 lb, and in the trauma center of the local hospital". Crack your knuckles, look as menacing as possible, point to your cut and say "That's all he managed to get outta me! You don't wanna know what happened to HIM!"

Gah. That was a bad idea! Remind me to remind you to never do that again.

Doood.... You really should have made up a fun story to tell your coworkers who will never know the truth. You know like a slapping deul or an attack pigeon or your pet squirrel decided to make a break for freedom or some other such nonsense. :) I'm sure you could have had them going for a while.

Glad to hear that it didn't affect your eyesight at all and that it's healing well. :)

Alas, my improvisational skills were so out of whack on Monday!
