Like a Rock

Steve's head is hard. As in, hard as granite. Or maybe marble. Or diamond or titanium. Or maybe rhenium diboride. I have seen this man step out of the shower, slip on some water, smash his head into the doorjamb with enough force to shake the walls and get up complaining, my thumb hurts. (And complaining about my laughter as well, but to a lesser degree.)

We do this weird lion and antelope thing. I've already said that I know we're weird, but I feel the need to reiterate it before I go on. We're weird!

So last night I was preparing for sleep by reading in bed. I heard a noise and looked around. Nothing. Then I heard the LION growl. I looked around again just in time to see him flying through the air colliding his massive, titanium head into my face. He felt bad. He was just trying to pounce on my back and give me great sloppy lion-kisses before bed. He immediately got up and fetched me some aspirin. Came back and said, Oh crap, you've got a black eye! I got up and looked in the mirror only to see this:

This is how I always look, bonehead! Lion kisses + lack of sleep = dark undereye circles. Anyway, I slept good. I drifted off to dreamland thinking about the symptoms of a concussion. Good sleep is one of those, right? Nothing like head trauma to give you a good night's rest.
On an unrelated note, my hyperlinks aren't showing up! It should just be a matter of changing the html code to a different color, but try as I might, I can't get it to work. Anyone want to help me? Puh puh puh please?

A little dab of concealing makeup and a good nights sleep (checking the eyes in the mirror to see if the pupils are equal is a good start)should cure the "black eye"...and cuddling up with a lion is always a good thing provided he's had a good meal first!
Weird? Okay, maybe a little.

Oh, now in that picture I could see it a little bit. But she's right, just a little makeup will cover it right up. LOL Bobby and I don't have lion and antelope, but I cuddle up every night with "The Monster", so I may be next! lol

I've had people ask me if I was in a fight, when I haven't been, for close to 40 years now. That's what happens when you have very white skin and a propensity towards dark circles under the eyes.

How awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Blessings to you and your family……

Funny, I remember you being the lion when you first were married. Did you switch roles???
But Steve's right, that is a shiner - even with your eye circles.

You poor, poor ravaged gisele!

I have those black circles, primarily from being sleep deprived for over 5 years. This is why I use Eeyore's behind as my picture.
DeBoy has an extremely hard hit. He has slammed it into my face on numerous occasions, usually drawing blood. From me, not him.

That was a funny story but not so funny for your poor face eh? Pretty eye!
