Have you ever had one?
Do you even know what they are?
I had a squink on Saturday, and it was so damn painful. My eye was watering all day long!
Oh! Sorry! I didn’t explain what it is yet.
I can’t remember when I had my first one. But it was at least eight or nine years ago.
Basically, what happens is…
When I drink too much – not just too much as in I’m a bit hungover the next day – but in too much as a lot more than too much, I get a squink.
The next day one of my eyes (usually my right one) swells up. Attractive, right? But that’s not at all. There’s also the stabbing feeling. Yes. It feels as though someone is stabbing me in the eye with a toothpick. This causes my eye to water and my nose to run.
Needless to say I don’t tend to go *anywhere* when I have a squink.
I haven’t had one since before Vinay was born – so that’s at least 3 years and I’d forgotten how truly painful they are.
Oh well… Serves me right for drinking too much!
