This morning I was finishing work,I was giving instructions to the day shift nursing assistants about a new patient. This new girl,who is blonde and blue eyed,when I looked at her,her eyes were of the freakiest blue I have ever seen in my life.I couldnt decide whether she was one of "The Others" or a Fremen.I was half waiting for her to say"I am the Shadout Mapes". I will definately avoid eye contact with that one….

Two words .. Contact Lenses

Yep, contacts. One of the students in my daughters class has orange eyes.

Was a rage with some of the girls I taught a couple of years ago. I warned them that swapping them wasn't a good idea. Then they all disappeared for a week with conjunctivitis. Haven't seen it on the same scale since, but these things come in waves.

You are old and they are young, cool, and what do you know about folks their age.

It may happen for us when our daughter becomes 21 (only
4 months away).

She recently changed jobs (against our advice), moved
in with her boyfriend (against our advice), and decided
not to complete her 4 years of college ('I need a break
'cause I'm burned out !).

She visited yesterday and was complaining about the
high cost of food, the high cost of gas, the non-
propects of any sort of advancement in her work ('Pop,
*they* all have degrees !')

The wise Pop merely asks 'How's your dog?'

Do they glow in the dark I wonder?

Paul Newman was in a movie as an Indian, they wanted to turn those baby blues into black or brown. The contacts had to be so dark he couldn't see with them. So Cochise, or Geronimo, or whomever he was, had blue eyes.

I have a pair of glow in the dark contacts.
I wear them to work on Halloween.
