Ohhh, my stomach!

Imagine, if you will, a fishbowl. The back and sides are covered with black film, so that all you can see is the front. A yellowish-white eel lives in the fishbowl, but he likes to hide behind the film, and only occasionally darts past the opening in the front. See? There he goes.. startled you, didn't it?

Now imagine that this isn't a fishbowl at all, it is the dilated eye of one of your coworkers who recently had cataract surgery; and the eel is not an eel, but a floating piece of something unidentifiable. INSIDE her eye. So that every time she moves her eye suddenly from side to side, it comes zipping out into the center of her pupil and slowly floats down out of sight. And this happens three or four times while you're talking to her.

How does your stomach feel now?

That is gross! She needs to have that checked out. I recommend looking at her chin while she talks to you! :)

Oh my.

I'd fire her if I were you.

LOL. JK. Wow.

Aaaack! I'd probably scream and ask her what the hell was in her eye!?

Totally grossed out. Eeew!

Oooohhh, my word! Looking at her chin would be good. Your description was quite good, by the way.
Other than that, how's it going???

That's bizarre! I would have a hard time not staring, and saying 'do it again! Do it again!' hehe

Eye stuff grosses me out.
Like totally, dude.
Give that bitch a patch and hope it's not some alien probe floating around in the optic goo.

For a minute there I thought I had stepped into the Twilight Zone!

...picture if you will ...

I wouldn't be able to speak to her, I'd be too grossed out. She needs to get that thing fixed or, like Mo said, get a patch! After all, pirates are in right now! Arrrr!!!
