An eye patch

I’m wearing an eye patch cause I want to be a pirate.

Just kidding.

I’m wearing an eye patch cause I want to exercise my left eye.

When I was around 3 years old, I woke up from an afternoon nap cross-eyed. The doctors were not sure why but assumed it was nerves related.

After 2 surgeries on my left eye and 1 on my right eye, my left eye is still a bit cross-eyed.

Being extra tired, excited and nervous all contribute to how cross-eyed it will get.

Not only am I very self conscious of this left eye of mine (hate taking pictures straight on) but, if I cover my right eye, I do not have the same strength or eye sight.

The other night while having some drinks at K’s house, I was telling her all of this and I said “I should wear an eye patch”.

Out of nowhere K pulled one out of her kitchen drawer. Cause you know, everyone has one of those just laying around…

I wore it for the rest of the night and it really helped my eye a lot.

I think I will start wearing an eye patch. (wink. with my left eye)
