Many years ago, I had a scary experience
involving my eye. The next day at school, I told my students about it. I did
not know at the time that this experience was going to become the stuff of legend.
Every year since, I have told a slightly more exaggerated version, and I am
sure that the story is by now as much my gruesome imagination at work as it
is truth. But it was originally based on a true story, I promise. And I still
cringe a little every time I put in a contact lens. Click on the links at your
