I was going for a run today when a bug hit me right in the eye. Naturally, I recoiled and shut my eye lids tightly. It hurt like hell, so I went home and tried to rinse it out.

It started to feel better until about an hour later when I made a very slight adjustment while rubbing my eye lid. The pain came back so I went into the bathroom to rinse it out again, but this time more thoroughly. In doing so, I dislodged a very small, and very dead bug from underneath my eye lid. Seriously, wtf?

But enough about me, how was your day?

Well I swallowed two bugs today. Didn't get any stuck in my eye though...

The probability that a bug will get stuck under your eyelid today is now one.

Before that, it was a million-to-one; which is to say, a sure thing. 1:999,999 is far more unlikely.

How odd, I got stuff caught in my eyes three times today.

Synchronicity, my friend.

Actually, it's even, not odd.
