    Haven’t seen Earl move that fast in a while.

    Susie Derkins played the joke of “knocked-out eye” on Calvin when he hit her in the back of the head with a snowball. Boy, did Calvin fall for that one after getting kicked in the keester while looking for the eye by Susie.

    When I was a kid, they used to say “If you pick up a guinea pig by its tail its eyes will fall out.” (Because it doesn’t have one.) Maybe someone picked Gramma up?

    When I was five, my mom had to call the plumber.

    I had asked my mom where she wanted me to put her can of hairspray. She told me, “Put it in the potty.” When she heard the potty flush, she realized the error in her wording.

    Reminds me of “archy is shocked,” by Don Marquis, that begins
    “speaking of shocking things
    as so many people are these days
    i noted an incident
    in a subway train recently
    that made my blood run cold
    a dignified looking
    gentleman with a long
    brown beard
    in an absent minded manner
    suddenly reached up
    and pulled his own left eye
    from the socket and ate it”
    Not as gruesome as it seems. See Google Books for the rest. (Okay, it was a pickled onion.)

    And that’s the natural consequence of calling people with glasses “four-eyes”.
    Gramma now has three

    wow! true story. I was on my first date with a girl back when we were 16 or so. I pick her up at the house and off we go to the movie theatre. suddenly, her hand flies up to her face and she nearly screams…“My eye popped out, my eye popped out!!”!!!

    I didn’t know what to do. here I am, 16, first date, in traffic and my date’s eye has just popped out. OMG! no cell phones in those days so i’m looking for a place with a pay phone to call for help. I pulled into a parking lot to help, not sure of what to expect. I was simultaneously concerned for her but also a bit fascinated to see what an empty eye socket might look like. hey…i’m a 16-yr old guy! seconds seemed like hours and just before i got out of the car to make the call I asked if she was OK. she said, “Yes”, and then explained hat she was referring to her contact lens. I breathed a HUGE sigh of relief.

    she found the lens, got “her eye” back in and we continued to the movie. that was nearly 46-years ago, she has been my wife for nearly 44 of those years and we still laugh about that to this day.

    So begins the sequel to “The Brother From Another Planet,” in which the alien could detach his eye to use as a surveillance camera.
    Opal is here outed as “The Gramma From Another Planet.” She thus keeps an eye on what Earl and Nelson are doing. Look for coming attractions concerning other family members…

    That’s hilarious! You may have been the only 16 year old kid who had a heart attack. Congratulations on nearly 44 years together.

    DavidHuieGreen: My response was always, “How stupid can you be, it’s only four lenses.”
