Ok raise your hand if you typed a strange search term over at Google or yahoo or whichever search engine you use and it brought you here. Alright, not that many hands in the audience. Sigh of relief.
I’d really like to know who -and more importantly – why? someone was searching for jewels embedded eyeballs – **ewwww* – and how that ended up bringing them to my site?
That search brought the sadist to my post Sqeaky clean golden girl where I talked about preparing for a colonoscopy and, at the time, an upcoming MRI and somehow went off on a tangent. Gee when do I ever do that? The tangent led me into a discussion about how, when I used to be a jeweller, I ended with gold stuck in my eyeballs quite often.
Now I know that a tiny little sliver of gold stuck in your eyeball hurts like hell. When that would happen to me when I was cutting designs in gold with a diamond flywheel or my diamond cutting machine I’d make my way as best as I could to the optometrist that happened to work in the same building with my eye watering like mad and me trying not to blink too much as that would have made the situation worse.
So if a tiny sliver of gold is extremely painful in your eyeball think about how painful a ruby or a 1/4 carat diamond would be! Geez what was that person thinking searching for jewels embedded eyeballs? Were they searching for people with gems in their eyes or eyeball ornaments that had jewels embedded in them?
Is this going to be some new, and likely short lived, fashion trend? If it is- well remember folks, you heard about it here first.
