I don't have a problem going out in public without make-up on. But I normally don't. I almost always have on at least mascara. And for work I put on a little shadow and liner. But today I don't have any of that and I'm prepared to hear, "Are you okay? You look really tired." I have squinty eyes, okay! Why don't you just back off!
Naturally I took to the internet to see if I could figure out what is going on and I came across this:
- Blepharitis – The inflammation of the eye margin mostly caused by a bacterial infection or a skin disorder.
Okay, that's a funny word, right? Go ahead and say it out loud. Hilarious! I think it's just eczema (I get it sometimes in the winter) but that won't stop me from hoping for this conversation:
"What's up with your eye?"
"I don't know. Maybe blepharitis."
