Black – My Christmas Color

So I ended up getting a black eye for Christmas. It looks awful. So no holiday pictures this year. I was lying on my tummy face to face with Zoey and I was trying to teach her to do the patty cake rhyme. So we were playing around and then I asked her to give me a high five, which she knows how to do. But high fives are not meant to be done lying down. She up with her paw to do it and missed my hand. Her nails came right down across my eye, scratching it inside, put a slight tear in my lower lid, and caused it to bleed. Quite a bit. I kept an ice cold cloth against my face for a while to bring the swelling down but in no time it was bruised and now it’s a full blown black eye. It wasn’t Zoey’s fault. We were playing and it was an accident. I hope it doesn’t stay like this too long. I’ve never had a black eye before so I don’t know how long these normally last.

It’s not the most attractive thing to see when I look in the mirror, that’s for sure.   


About Secret Stains

I wanna do something that matters, say something different, something that sets the whole world on it's ear. i wanna do something better with the time I've been given and I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life to prove I was here. I apologize if I seem absent minded sometimes. Sometimes I forget I'm still awake and say things out loud. Inside I am beginning to burst at the seams. There are so many secrets ... so many scars ... so many stains. This is me. Welcome to my world.

    sorry to hear that happened. Black eyes are painful. It shouldn’t last too long hopefully you’re feeling better now.


  2. It looks aweful. Is your eye ok? You did not get any scratches on the cornea?
    I know that would need an eye dr for antibiotic drops.

    Hope you are feeling better. You had a rough holiday season.

    • Yeah it did look pretty awful. But thankfully my cornea wasn’t affected and it healed up without needing a doctor visit. The holidays are over and my eye is better and it’s the start of a new year.
      Wish you all the best in the coming months ๐Ÿ’•
