my eyeballs itch today. nothing new, really -- it's allergy season, after all. however, I have a shiny new allergy med i just started, so hopefully that will help in the long run. but, back to my eyeballs. they itch.
and i noticed a familiar phenomenon, one i've never spoken aloud, so i thought i'd write about it here. don't get too excited, it's not that great...but maybe it is, i dunno. SO. whenever i rub my eyeballs, for as long as i can remember (way back into early childhood), when I really get going, I see shapes. like, my eyes are closed, i'm rubbing-rubbing-rubbing, and i notice (?) gray argyles. yes, my eyelid visions are argyles. i have no idea what that means, and of course if i try to "focus" on it, i can't really, because people, my eyes are CLOSED. it's really weird. so today? i was just rubbing my eyeballs vigorously and i noticed that not only were there argyles, but swirlies. SWIRLIES. like, vertigo-looking. black and white and all.
so my question is: is it just me?
