I have this condition. It doesn't have a name yet. They'll probably name it after me. Basically, it's a condition that causes the bags under my eyes to darken and inflate given certain conditions. Usually it's because of tiredness. I get a lot of "Dude, are you okay?" and "You look like a zombie." And those kinds of comments don't hurt my feelings because I've seen the evidence.
But occasionally, I'll hit the perfect storm of eye-puffiness. Like this morning. You just have to add the lack of sleep from last night, the lack of coffee/caffeine this morning, the fact that I'm feeling slightly under the weather, and that ridiculously stupid Daylight Savings Time. So now I look like I got punched in the face... twice.
And I'm not exaggerating about that. I honestly look like I was hit by someone. Strangers are giving me looks of pity and co-workers are asking me what happened. And if I weren't so out of it, I'd come up with something witty to say back. Probably something involving Mike Tyson or some hurried, nervous mumble about how "I fell. That's all. I just fell."
