Poke your eye out


Here’s something that often bothers me at a strange level.  Whenever I see a sharp object lying around, I imagine myself picking it up and stabbing it into my eye.

Now, this is not something I want to happen.  Ever!   Still, I cannot help thinking about.  Maybe it is just the warnings we received as children about being careful not to poke our eye out when we are playing with sharp objects. 

Some kind of psychiatric reverse thinking?  Anyone else have this problem?

    Snort! YES! I walk through the house holding scissors out in front of me, morosely thinking that it would be the dumbest way to die, ever, if I were to trip and plunge them in to myself.
