I’ll Just Stick My Finger In My Eye…Gina’s Favorites

by Gina Valley

My brain is a bit stretched this week. I’ve just returned from a 10 day trip, and would like to blame jet lag for my fogginess, but I didn’t leave my time zone. Whatever the reason for it, my punchiness made my I’ll Just Stick My Finger In My Eye post seem perfect for Throwback Day this week.  Giggle along with this Gina’s Favorites post.

I’ll Just Stick My Finger In My Eye

You know how sometimes you impress your family and friends with your skill and competence?

Yeah, me neither.

Last night a little moth flew straight into my face, landed on my nose, freaked out, and tried to fly away.

Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley I’ll Just Stick My Finger In My Eye...Gina's Favorites Overreacting Spouses InsectsBut, he must have forgotten how he got there (or maybe he just had a poor sense of direction.  Not judging here.  Just reporting) (Although I am pretty sure he’s male, since he didn’t ask for directions and I know how you guys hate to do that), so instead of flying away from my face, he cruised forward and went underneath the bridge of my glasses.

So, the hyper Lepidoptera got trapped between my glasses and my eye.  This further, apparently, freaked out the moth (I believe that “freaked out” is in fact a scientific measurement of the quantity of spazzing out an organism is doing, even though The Professor continues to insist that it is not).  So, the moth took off flying and crashed directly into my right eye.

My winged assaulter then proceeded to fly the short route between my eye and the lens of my glasses repeatedly and rapidly, alternatingly bouncing off of the glass of the lens and the lid of my eye (thankfully my eyelid has that built in “close you fool!” reflex, because, heaven knows, I wasn’t thinking quickly enough to shut it).

I’m pretty sure that the little bugger completed his Kamikaze circuit at least 20,000 times in the ten seconds it took me to wrest my glasses from my face (you know, sometimes my glasses just fall off, but during this moth-related emergency they seemed to be cemented on to my ears with some sort of invisible glue).

I, naturally, remained completely calm and relaxed throughout the whole experience.

By “calm” I mean, naturally, “screaming and running around” (that counts as cardio, right?).  I’m pretty sure the moth was screaming, too.  The Professor says that moths can’t scream, but the moth was right by my eye, and I’m fairly certain I could see his little mouth screaming.

Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley I’ll Just Stick My Finger In My Eye...Gina's Favorites Overreacting Spouses InsectsI’m also pretty sure that when a giant insect is attempting to gain entry into your body by way of your eyeball, it’s the perfect time for screaming.  Now, granted, this was a tiny moth, but I think the appropriate-screaming-time designation still applies.

You never know what those things are capable of morphing into latter.  After all, moths start out like little worms.  They somehow turn themselves into an animal that can fly.  Who knows what they can change into if one of them somehow manages to burrow into my brain. I’m not about to let one of them into my brain by way of my eyeball just to see what they are capable of.  I ‘m still using my brain.  Well, some of it, anyway.

So, having panicked and yet somehow having managed to survive this furry, aerial assault was bad enough, but then, as so often happens when I’m involved in something stupid that I hope no one else in the world ever finds out about, I felt a deep need to tell someone about it.

Very often, partly because he’s nearby, and partly because I know he won’t tell anyone (who’d believe him anyway?  Whose wife really gets into these sorts of predicaments on a regular basis besides Ricky Ricardo’s?) I decided to tell The Professor what had happened.

He started off pretty interested, because my moth incident had resulted in a puddle on the floor.  He’s always interested in the composition of puddles, partly because he’s a scientist interested in chemicals and partly because he’s a dad interested in not stepping in piddle.

Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Parenting Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Parenting Gina Valley I’ll Just Stick My Finger In My Eye...Gina's Favorites Overreacting Spouses InsectsHe sort of lost interest in my short tale of moth woe early on when he determined that I’d created the puddle when I dropped my bottle of water while doing graceful ninja moves (my description) (probably would have been referred to as “I think mom is having a seizure” had any of my pack been witnesses) in an effort to evade my furry, winged stalker.

But, as I was demonstrating the bizarre trajectory the moth took, I managed to poke myself in the eye with my fingernail.  I thought this was an especially brilliant move on my part, because I was wearing my glasses at the time.

The Professor didn’t seem impressed with my finger agility or the extent of my injury.  In fact, he went so far as to imply that I was over-reacting to the situation, and by “imply” I mean he  actually said, “You’re over-reacting to this situation.”

My temporary blindness didn’t seem to raise any sympathy either.  He did suggest that I only type on the left side of the page until my vision in my nail-impaled right eye had returned to its normal clarity.

He’s a big help.

That’s ok, though.  I won’t take his lack of compassion personally.

In fact, I’m thinking of surprising him with some homemade chocolate chip cookies to take to work tomorrow, if my eye stops watering soon enough to make them.

The surprise will be that they’re not going to be chocolate chip cookies.  They’re going to be oatmeal cookies with raisins.  He hates those.  They get stuck in his teeth.

We’ll see who’s over-reacting when he bites into one of those.

Laugh Out Loud!


Anything silly caused you to freak out recently?  Were your loved ones supportive, or too busy laughing?  Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

I would have LOST it if a moth got stuck behind my glasses. I’m feeling a bit queasy just thinking about it. And I’ve stuck myself in the eye before… as have my daughters.

I must confess that it really did freak me out! You’d have thought someone was stabbing me. Lol!

I think all us cool people have stuck ourselves in the eye! ;o)

I had fun reading this! The thought of having that moth between my glasses and eyes make me freak out inside. I so can relate with that.

We had this problem about rats from the rice field getting inside the house. One night, when I turned on the light in the kitchen to get me a drink, I saw this big rat which freaked me out (the poor rat freaked out too)! I shouted with all my might like a reflex. Hello it’s like around 11 pm. I could have woken up my neighbors. My husband came out from the room immediately upon hearing my shout. He thought it was an emergency situation. Lol!

Its sharing on social media website, writing etc content is not enough
you need to promote it properly to get many back links.
In the case of external links, an absolute pathname would contain the ‘ part of the website address
as well. Application that automates the procedure of
exchanging links with content matched websites is not cheating, but
is merely a more efficient way to conduct business.
