Trickle Trickle Little Scar

Everyone’s seen the footage right? That fireball scorching through the Russian sky a couple of years ago? It was called the Chelyabinsk meteor and the media went into overdrive about it. Soon though, it was old news and life there returned to normal.

I was staying at Lake Chebarkul to the north when it hit. I remember the searing light, a sudden blast of heat and then the pain as a tiny shard of that thing lodged in the pulpy flesh of my right eye.
Since then I see things differently. My worldview has altered. And I cry. I cry.

My worldview altered when I got my first pair of spectacles. It was a truly spectacular experience...

I like "pulpy eye flesh"
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
