I don’t know that I actually have “pinkeye” because my doctor says if you only have the problem in one eye it usually isn’t. And I don’t have ALL the pinkeye symptoms, so maybe he’s right. But my eye was crusted shut this morning, is all red, with dark red eyelids, and it’s itchy and hurty and kind of feels like I’ve been sobbing my eyes out for days. And itchy and hurty. Don’t forget that.
So I don’t know where this came from. The only answer, then, is that God is punishing me for something. I just need to figure out what. The only cartoon I’ve created recently is a lovely drawing of Ricky Ricotta from the back of one of Junior’s books (it shows you how to draw the characters, step-by-step) but I don’t think any major religions consider Mr. Ricotta (or his giant robot) a prophet. I could be wrong, of course.
Let’s see, anything else you need to know? Oh right, I almost forgot…there’s another item that we may have to add to the “Things Jody Loves that they Discontinue” list. I have to do more research, but all the grocery stores I’ve visited in the past few weeks have stopped carrying a product I really love – Cremora Royale. It’s plastic coffee creamer, but you have to believe me when I tell you that Mr. Dump used to put it in my coffee sometimes and I couldn’t tell if he’d used half-and-half or not. That’s the mark of a fine product. And because we don’t make coffee at home very much any more, we don’t buy half-and-half, and if there’s no half-and-half, I can’t make coffee at home even if I want to. We used up the Royale we had so I need a new container…and can’t find one. So I’m going to search it out on the web, hoping that the fact that it’s not on my local shelves doesn’t mean it’s gone forever.
