News, but not the serious kind
Two words I hate to see together
Blog Guy, you seem upset. What is it?
I just read a health story that said they’re considering using acupuncture to treat people with “lazy eye.”
But the idea of talking about needles and eyes at the same time is just too much for me. It’s like that quote from Shakespeare, “Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye…”
Blog Guy, that wasn’t Shakespeare, that’s something kids say. And the story just talks about sticking acupuncture needles “into points on the body classically associated with vision…”
Yeah? Personally, the point on the body that I classically associate with vision is my eyeballs.
I think you misunderstand the concept, and you’re making too much of it.
All I know is, I could have the worst case of “lazy eye” on record.
Heck, I could have “indolent eye,” “lethargic eye,” “unemployment is fine for me” eye. I could even have “Take this Job and Shove it eye,” and I STILL wouldn’t let anybody near me with needles.
Really? Do you swear that?
Yep. Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a… Damn you, that was a trick!
