Carrot Top

Freshman year, my eye got infected and the optometrist told me I had something called:


I actually couldn’t pronounce what the doctor said, so that’s just what I called it and then my friends started to call me Carrot Top because of it. I’ve seen a bunch of doctors since then, opthamologists actually–because I didn’t want to be diagnosed as Carrot Top anymore. I can’t remember what they said I have, it’s written down somewhere in my files.

Anyway, on Monday my eye started hurting again. It’s not as red as it was freshman year, but it is so irritating and really starts burning after a while.

Just call me Carrot Top from now on. And don’t make fun of me if I have to wear an eye patch.
