By rubbing my eye too hard yesterday, I must have broken a blood vessel. Red eye! By nighttime, it still smarted. Good thing cucumbers are in season. I cut off a slice from the nice and cold refrigerator and put it over my closed eye. Ahhh. Before I went to bed, I sliced off a new piece and lay down, letting the cucumber do its "ice-pack" job. In the middle of the night, I woke, feeling something slimy on my neck. You guessed it. It was the warm cucumber slice.
Good thing I was tired. My hubby might not have appreciated my first thought, which was to jump up and scream “Alien vampires!”
