Behind the cut, why you should always wear safety goggles when using a weed whacker.



That’s something analogous to a bruise or a blood blister on my eyeball, from a piece of grit getting thrown into my eye at high speed. Whee! It hurt right when it happened, but almost immediately felt completely fine (and still feels fine now several hours later). If it had been a couple millimeters over, though, that might have been a very different story.

Don’t try this at home, kids! Wear eye protection!

PS — And of course after this happened (and I’d taken a look and satisfied myself that the damage wasn’t too serious), I went and found the safety goggles I’d been too lazy to look for before starting.

Will you go see an eye doctor this week to make sure nothing was actually damaged, please?

I don't know about you but my camera came with software that removes the red-eye.

Seriously, I'm glad that you seem to be ok (and hope that you are in fact ok).

Oh, my god! I'm so glad your eye wasn't seriously injured.

Take CARE of the Beowabbit, will ya? He's important to a lot of folks. If you won't take good care of him for you, then take good care of him for us. :-)
