    I didn't know where to put this, so I just put it here...

    I got a little drunk last night and I tripped (in my house thank God) and hit my head and now I have my first ever black eye. Now I can't go anywhere because people will think my husband beats me or something and I'm supposed to have dinner with my family tomorrow but WTF am I supposed to say? Grr I've canceled the past 2 weeks but I can't go like this :huh:

    :no: Poor eyes :hug:

    :dunno: Don't know what anyone would believe... the ol' "I walked into a door" excuse isn't very credible sometimes :eek:hmy:

    Doctor it as much as possible. But be gentle. Maybe it'll fade, if even a little.

    Good luck. >.<

    In this day and age people never believe the cupboard door or door. Sometimes a softball works, depending on the people. I hope it feels better soon. Of course you could tell the complete truth. I don't know. i wish you luck. :)

    Aww thank you guys so much for your sweet thoughts :) I called my mom today and told her what happened, minus the me being drunk part :laugh: She said I should just wear a sign that says "I fell, O.K.?" Thank God she loves my hubby to death so she would never suspect him or anything.

    At least I just have dinner at her house tomorrow...and I went to the grocery store Friday and I'm not working right now, so hopefully I can just hide out for awhile.

    Makeup won't cover this baby just yet...my eye is practically swollen shut. :eek:utcold:

    I guess I can wear sunglasses if I go to the pool, and if I go to the gym...well...I kinda want to see people's reaction. It's so gross you guys :rolleyes:

    You might as well play it up and enjoy all the strange reactions you recieve. You know what happened and if they don't want to believe you, that's their problem. :blink:

    Heehee. That's what I was thinking Gentlelady! My husband said I have to wear sunglasses if we go out together though so people don't think he's a wife-beater or something :laugh: Hopefully nobody calls the police on him or anything :eek:hmy:

    I say don't worry too much but if it'll make you feel better, put liquid foundation on, that usually works good with black eyes/though swollen shut, I'd make it look a bit better but that's me but really, you know the truth, it's nothing I'd panic about..

    I may try liquid foundation...the color is pretty gruesome! I only imagine it will get worse, going from black and red to being yellow and green. I'm totally bringing sexy back :laugh:

    Definitely. Who can resist all those gorgeous colors? And in those combinations no less. Your hubby better watch out! :laugh:

    Yeah, now we're all jealous and going to be falling just for the fad you are starting! :tongue::laugh:

    :laugh: Seriously, watch the runways in Paris and check out the Fall issue of Vogue. It's going to be all the rage, and I don't think I'm gonna be able to keep my husband away...I'll be exhausted by the end of the week!

    :hug: to Carolyn and Gentlelady for making me laugh (even though it hurts when I do!)
  14. Tell them you recently took up the fine art of Muay Thai :boxer:... and if they still don't believe you then beat the crap out of them :eek:utcold: to show them how good you've become.

    :laugh: That's a great idea! If they ask what the Hell happened I'll just say "You should see the other guy!"

    I'm a mean swine:dry:
    Once I was in such a hurry to get out the door of a public phone booth, I let go of the door on my way out..smash half a ton of iron smacked me in the eye.
    I staggered out seeing stars all the way home...you should have seen the eye:eek:hmy: I looked like I'd had a ruck with Mike Tyson and lost.

    So what do I do :dry: am walking down the street with my best friend Owen, when 2 cops were coming up the other way. I turn on my heels and say really loudly to Owen...how the hell could you do this to me..ok so I pinched the guys' bum..but still.
    You should have seen his face :laugh: The :police: 's just gave him the filthiest of looks :laugh:

    Bless ya, Peanut. :hug: i actually do walk into doors, walls, the lot, drunk or non...think i need some kind of alarm to warn me if i'm getting too close to something :unsure: I say, go with shades :wink: Or, tell the truth? :blink:
  19. I like your wicked sense of humor.

    ps, "bum" = "butt"......"arse" = "ass" :laugh:. Interesting how though we speak the same basic language ( you English, and I the American derivative ) we can't help but use the different vernacular that we grew up listening to.

    I suppose people from Australia and New Zealand have even further "evolved"
    the language to reflect their own cultural preferences as well.

    Just a thought..English has now even become the dominant language in outer space !!! Why would I say that ? Because when I watch episodes of Star Trek even the aliens :alien: are speaking it. Cool !
