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.
