What the hail....?

Today is a sad day for me..

Let me start from the beginning. Yesterday afternoon I had a doctor's appointment.  I have been fighting a sinus infection since the Clinton administration and I was sick and tired of it.  I needed antibiotics stat.  So, I swung by the pharmacy, picked up my meds, grabbed up my babies from my Mom's and headed home just in time.  The storms were coming and I didn't want to be out when it all started. 

I changed into my sweats and assumed the position of a slug while I read my kindle and watched it rain like crazy.  Then out of no where, the skies opened up and it hailed like I have never seen it hail before.  It looked like a snow storm..only the cute little flakes would have put your eye out.  I've seen bigger hail, but not this much all at once.  It was amazing and it had me counting my blessing that we were all tucked in save at home. I then remained in the slug position for the rest of the evening with my kindle and proceeded to read until I was cross eyed and my hubby had to peel the kindle off my face as he came to bed. 

This morning I woke up feeling a lot better and cheerily got ready for work.  Then I stepped out my back door to this..

WAAAAAA!



*Sniffle*

In case you forgot what this looked like before mother nature unleashed her fury on my poor basil..

 
My cute tea cup planter is no longer with us.  He was so cute while he lasted. 
Fortunately for me, I'm sure next spring Wal-Mart will have more and for $20 I will be a proud owner of another tea cup planter.  ..but it still hurts.
 
 
 
One more thing..
 
 
As I was getting ready this morning, I looked at over at my flat iron and I was totally confused, here is why..
 
 


I have so many questions about this.
like...

How does someone burn their eye with a flat iron?
Were they trying to straighten their eyebrows?..eyelashes?
Has it happened so much that they thought it necessary to put a warning on the cord? (Eek.)
Did you just drop it and it smacked into your eyeball?
If you did drop it, wouldn't your first reaction be to squeeze your eye shut?
Can the flat iron not burn any other area of the face?  I feel this is a little unfair to other facial structures, like your nose for example.  I bet your nose doesn't want to be burnt either. Your nose would probably appreciate a tag on the cord too.
Has this really happened so much that they thought it necessary to put a warning on the cord? (double Eek!)

Hmm...
this warning has made me feel less than optimistic about my fellow man.
..and his ability to use a flat iron.
...not that I was feeling all that optimistic to begin with, after all, someone has sued because their coffee was hot.
So there you go.

I hope you have a great, and eyeball burn-free, Saturday!
love,
Val
