I dropped my iPhone on my eye

My nightly going-to-bed routine goes like this:

  • Turn off bedroom light.
  • Turn off computer monitors.
  • Lie down in bed.
  • Set phone alarm.
  • Turn on reading light and read a book till drowsy.

I didn’t get to read my book last night.

I had gotten into bed and picked up my iPhone to set the alarm. Because I was lying on my back, I naturally positioned the phone above my face so I could look at it.

While sliding the iPhone on, I somehow lost my grip on it and it fell right into my eye, the corner of the phone stabbing my right eye.

I shrieked.

Which startled the Goonfather awake. (He usually sleeps way before me.) He mumbled thickly, “What happened.”

I said, “I dropped my iPhone on my eye.”

It took a second for him to register what I said, and then he started laughing, the bastard.

I smacked him and called him an idiot.

My eye is fine, though, thanks for asking.

It wasn’t a very far drop. It just stung for a while, teared for a bit, and then it was fine.

Didn’t feel like reading anymore.

This morning, the Goonfather MSN’ed me: “You kena eye-phone!!! Hahaha.”
