Never again am I going to play a prank on someone who looks like he can fold me into two with his pinky finger. Well in case you’re wondering what I’m talking about, here’s what happened. I was watching the TV the other day and I saw this amazing joke. Something I just had to try out! So I made the necessary preparations and of I went to college (yes I mean college not school and yes I know what I did was extremely childish), in college the first person I saw was Big Mack (not his real name of course. Name changed to avoid hospitalization of the writer). So I go up to him and I say hey Mack would you like to see the picture of the most stupid person on the planet? He said yes and by this time a crowd gathers I opened the box, he put his hand in the box and took out its content. Well what he saw kind of ticked him off because the next thing I know something huge came towards my eye and I doubled over with pain. A few minutes later my right eye was all swollen and black!! And just in case you were wondering, there was a mirror in the box, hehehehe. It’s amazing how an object so common can inspire the wrath of a bully, but that’s for another day. Today however I’m going to be blabbering about the black circular disc that adorns my right eye. Well it’s not that big a deal but it looks really disgusting. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to deal with a black eye.

  • PACK IT IN ICE well you know how nice it feels when you apply something cool on a bruise? Well it works with black eyes too because it helps keep the swelling down and decreases internal bleeding by constricting the blood vessels. A little tip, don’t put t ON the eye, put ice on the cheek bone or your forehead. Don’t put any pressure on your eye. If there is no ice available u can also use a cold soda can.
  • AVOID ASPIRIN see the thing with aspirin is it’s an anticoagulant meaning it doesn’t let the blood clot. This is actually a bad thing because it won’t stop the bleeding and get rid of the discoloration. You might even end up with a bigger bruise.
  • DON’T BLOW YOUR NOSE I know how weird this sounds. But if your wound is a serious and you blow that nose your heads going to blow up like a balloon! Sometimes the injury fractures the bone of the eye socket and blowing your nose can force air out of your sinuses adjacent to the socket. The air gets injected under your skin and makes the eyelids swell even more, and it can also lead to infection
  • ENJOY THE SHOW apart from all the stuff I just went n about, there’s not a whole lot of things you can do except controlling the swelling. Even make up cannot help you disguise that totally. If nothing else it’ll make you look like a clown. But the fun thing is the healing period is really colorful. The injury starts out black as it starts to heal it turns green then yellow and finally it disappears.

Well that’s all for today folks. If you have any more tips or if you find anything that’s wrong do post it in the comment box. The box thirsts for your comments
