Forget about slipping on ice. How about tripping over your dog and slamming into a door post. Ouch! I have a huge black dog who seems to enjoy getting under foot. He disguises himself as a rug, which you don't see until it's too late. I am uber-conscious about these pitfalls, but they happen.
At first it was a bump over my right eye with a small cut. I iced it and put a bandage over it. What I overlooked was that since I had my reading glasses on, they hit my right eye, which is now a beautiful shade of purple with reddish overtones.
I hope the color doesn't spread. It really looks as though I was punched in the eye.
