Once a month, or so, I seem to put away my contact lenses into its reverse holder. I don’t know how/why it happens, the right lens holder is bright green and it should be obvious to me. I don’t know, but it happens. The next morning I blindly put my contacts into what I think is the correct eye. I seem to immediately know that something’s wrong, but I cannot believe that I would make such a mistake, so I continue on.
Even driving to work I convince myself that I must be going blind, instead of considering that I could make a mistake. Yes, upon arriving, I switch the lenses and all is well.
I try not to believe that my error is a harbinger of ‘having a bad day’.
All is well today.
