When I was into competitive swimming eons ago, I couldn’t bare swimming without goggles. Swimming with bare naked eyes would mean chlorine soaked, blood-shot eyes, which sounds painful because it is painful, especially if you’ve been in the water for at least two hours (the average time spent in a single training session).
Now that I’m out of the competitive swimming world, I still can’t seem to part with my goggles. Do I still swim with them?
Uhm, yes…in the very rare occasions that I hit the pool on the roof deck of our apartment building. But I do have an alternative use for this sporty eyewear. I actually use them in the kitchen. You’ve read it right. In the K-I-T-C-H-E-N. I use goggles in the kitchen with no shame at all. It’s my kitchen and I’ll do what I want to.
This is the most effective way I can stop myself from crying, while chopping onions. Yessiree! I don’t care if I look like a dork. At least I don’t have teary, blood-shot eyes! And by the way, The Husband agrees that it is a good way to keep those onion tears at bay. So there!
How do you keep yourself from crying while chopping those onions?
Delirious about delicious,
