    your CONTACT froze………?
    does that mean your eyelashes snapped off………
    and you superglued your nose back on……?

    where are your ears……..

    OH MY……..thank god old granpa liked his tea HOT……..

  • … laughing again … well, technically it didn’t FREEZE … but it was irritated and when I got back to the house, taking it out, it split in half (the contact, not my eye) … and one of the halves took until that night to allow me to coax it back out!!! Fear not … my eyelashes are just fine and you can barely see the superglue lines around the nose!!!
