Hey, if you left the top of it open you could have had a spot to keep a few loose coins- would work if you were wearing something without pockets!
(it would also weight it down so it didn't flap in the breeze)

Okay seriously, sorry to hear about the Bell's, my cousin had it in her 30's, lasted only a few weeks but what a way to 'Wake you up'.

Keep your chin up and looking at the brighter side of life.

A few years ago I had Bells Palsy.  It was weird.  I was eating with my hubby, and I thought I had burned my tounge, because it felt funny.  Well, then the next morning I was putting on lipstick, and could not move my lips around to spread the lipstick.  Then I knew something was wrong.  I thought seriously that I was having a stroke, but I felt fine.  I took myself to the E.R.

It took me about a week to heal up, because I caught it right away. Don't worry, you'll be better in no time.

Way cool! I wish I'd thought of this back when I worked at the Eye center... We had little kids come in who would need an eye patch due to some temporary problem, and they got horrid little plastic ones with elastic that cut into the skin.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!  That eye patch is awesome, as is your sense of humor about things.  Very cute!

Wow, I had no idea that Bell's Palsy was so common, I too had this about 2 years ago.  It totally freaked me out, but did go away in a week or two.  Meanwhile, whenever I laughed, I did like a little Japanese School Girl, hand covering mouth!  Wish I had thought of an eyepatch!

My mum had Bell's Palsy about 10 years ago. Once we figured out that she wasn't having a silent stroke, we had a good time laughing about it as she dribbled coffee and thus had to drink with her head tilted sideways! It started with her eye burning, which she thought was due to getting soap suds into it during her shower. Then we figured out that the reason the soap got in there in the first place is because the Palsy wouldn't let her close her eye. She would have been PROUD to rock a cool eye patch like this one!

cute patch!  and at least you can have the fun of being a pirate--today and as long as you feel like it!

as for coming out in public--Amy Goodman--a fearless lefty journalist--host of Democracy Now--had it last year and she decided to keep doing her broadcasts--she wanted to be the face of reality on tv instead of airbrushed perfection--so you're in excellent company!

That looks great, and I'm glad to hear the condition is only temporary Smiley
