Has your cat ever given you a black eye? - Page 2

post #31 of 42
Tsk, tsk, Jamie, causing your Meowmy so much pain! Sending for a speedy recovery with no more incident.

Physician's Formula makes a yellow concealer that's good for covering up dark circles. NYC has a cheaper version that works just as well and is cruelty-free. I reckon you'd have to use a lot on black eye, though.

My brother did get a lip piercing about 15 years before they became fashionable, courtesy of our RB kitty Nibbles. I was holding Nibbles, and Sean had had enough of waiting his turn to play with him (in his defense, he was only 8 at the time) and grabbed him from me. Nibbles, who was normally a very gentle, sweet cat, understandably panicked and accidentally bit Sean through the lower lip. Sean needed topical antibiotics and a couple of stitches, and he does have a tiny scar to this day (he's 30 now).

The upside of that is that it did get my mom a new job. She'd been working nights for years and wanted to switch to days, and it turned out that the urgent care center where she took my brother needed a day shift supervisor. She got an interview time before she paid the bill and was hired within the week.

Maybe I'm being too self-conscious about my appearance at my age (soon to be 51)? Yesterday, I told my classes that yes, I had a black eye, and was sitting down/getting up very gingerly, all thanks to Jamie, and they expressed their sympathy.

One of my classes isn't in on Mondays, and today I used the same concealer/foundation/ heavy on the eye shadow trick I used yesterday. First, one of the guys in that class was outside in the smoking area with me, and told me he didn't want to come across as sexist (and he is), but that dramatic eye make-up suited me.

When I taught the class in the afternoon, I told them what had happened, and several of the girls said they'd remarked I was wearing more eye make-up than usual, but hadn't noticed the black eye, though two said they thought I'd forgotten to apply the "purple eyeliner" to both eyes, but felt funny calling my attention to it! How sweet!

Oh Tricia, at least you're getting lots of laughs out of this story. Hope your ribs heal soon so it won't hurt to laugh!

I once had to tell a (normally very stylish!) lecturer that her underwear was visible.

It was a little awkward, but I'd have hated to be her and wondering how long it was going on for.

IME, kids often don't tell you what they should tell you.

I got my days mixed up once, and taught a class for a full 90 minutes. After class, they told me that Mr. W. normally taught those lessons/periods. I'd wondered why he'd opened the door, stuck his head in, and said "Oh!". He thought he'd mixed up his days, and looked around till he found a class without a teacher, and that, i.e., "my", class never said boo, either. I still giggle about that.

i once realized during my last class (during my long day) that my shirt had been on backward all day long - it had print on both sides and it struck me as funny and i couldnt stop giggling no matter how hard i tried. of course i sat right in front of my prof and i know he thought i was laughing at him and i kept causing him to lose train of thought.
i had to get up and leave a room of 400 before i started cackling hysterically. i blame lack of sleep. i tried explaining to him later but i dont think be believed i was laughing about my shirt. it really was one of those dumb things that just struck me as funny...

back to black eyes...

the weekend before st paddys day, i had a seizure in the shower of all freaking places and got a REALLY bad black & green eye, cracking my cheek bone and orbital. when ppl would ask what happened to my eye, i would tell them my mom got really drunk and hit me (unbeknownst to my mom LOL)
ok youd have to know my mom to know thats really funny, not mean. (for example, when i was 12, to punish me for being obnoxious, my mom sang 'im the goodship lollypop' and called out that she was my mother in walmart to humilate me) we told ppl the truth about my seizure - dont worry lol

Yowch!!!

Can't say my cats have ever been the guilty parties of bruising due to that sort of incident...but they have gotten their fair share of nibbles, clawings, and other random 'bad' kitty' acts that have left me battered!!hahaha...

I reached down to pick up a dropped can of cat food, and when I came back up, I hit my head on the corner of the cabinet and knocked myself out.
When I got my eyebrow pierced the first time, I have 2 right beside each other, one of the cats grabbed the ring and pulled it. I ended up with a purple eyelid and underneath my eye. It didn't swell up, fortunately.

Oh my! That's awesome.

Once, as a freshman, I walked into my history class (which was in a science lab for some reason, thank you, UL), promptly took my seat, and started getting ready for class.

Somehow I missed the fact that I was in the wrong class with the wrong students studying the wrong subject until the lecturer came in.

I was a bit uncertain then, thinking, maybe guest lecture.

Nope.

I felt SO stupid getting up and excusing myself with an "I'm sorry, I'm in the wrong class," to which the lecturer blithely remarked aloud, "oh, I knew you couldn't have been one of mine, they never sit in the front row."

Er, what did you think I was?
