"I unintentionally glued my eyes shut"

This is in response to Lili Radloff's column, Our biggest beauty blunders.

My beauty blunder came one Saturday morning when I was home alone with my five-year-old daughter. I was plucking my eyebrows and noticed that my one false eyelash was coming loose at the end.

I hopped out of bed (I was still in bed at the time, as it was just after 7) and ran to the bathroom mirror to have a closer look. Yes, it was indeed coming loose on the edge and it just needed a little bit of glue.

I got myself some super glue and opened the cap, but nothing seemed to be coming out of this tiny little tube. So, I squeezed a bit harder than usual.

The glue exploded onto my face and into my eyes, and my normal human reaction was to shut my eyes close and mouth wide open.

In a matter of seconds, I could not see a thing. My eyes were glued closed.
