Geez, for someone that never gets ill, this morning came as quite a surprise. I woke up with not only a sore and scratchy throat, but a stye in my left eye. The throat thing I don’t really mind, it doesn’t really feel bad – it just gives me a cool bass sound to my voice. The eye however, is bothersome.

A stye is really nothing more than a pimple at the base of an eyelash and treatment is pretty simple – keep it clean, use a warm compress, and wait. You can pop the thing, but it isn’t recommended. Because of the swelling of the lower eyelid, it looks like I got popped in a fight. That’s okay too – if I notice someone looking at the swollen eye, I am going to say, “The other guy is dead!”
