The genius that is me.....
I remembered to bring Tiger Balm Ultra to work. I remembered to bring said balm to the bathroom in order to apply it to my aching, cranky back. I rejoiced in the fact that I was sooooo awesome in the realm of the most awesomely awesome.
Mmmmmm... minty burning that distracts from the oowie.
You know what you should NOT do after you apply the blissful balm?
As you walk towards the sink to wash the balm-y-ness from your hands?
rub. your. eyes.
It actually says that on the back of the tin.
And perhaps I could have read that, if the burning tears of shame-pain weren't streaming down my face.
