Yesterday, I went swimming. In the ocean, which was awesome. The water was warm (and clear for the Pacific), the sun was out. All around good time.
Except something worked itself under my goggles and now both my eyes are swollen, red, itchy and puffy. Right where my goggles touched the skin around the eyes.
I look like an overly emotional racoon.
Of course, I tried some over the counter calamine lotion, and it got worse. Now it’s so bad that it’s to the point of being funny.
Except that I have to work tomorrow, which is awesome (yay, work!), and I’m desperately trying to figure out a way to get at least the puffy to go down instead of getting ribbed non-stop about what I may or may not have done over the weekend.
I’ve tried chamomile tea, ice, antihistamines… nothing’s working.
Since it’s Sunday, the Motion Picture health centers aren’t open. Of course.
