eating some spicy spicy spicy noodle soup at some noodle place here for lunch. the noodles were way hot, so to cool them down you have a little bowl that you can transfer the noodles to from the big cast iron bowl. but the noodles are also slippery and pretty long, so it's hard to keep a grip on them to get them all the way out of the big bowl so they slip down and splash fiery soup droplets. i've eaten similar dishes before and although my shirt was usually the main victim, today a random droplet flies into my left eye and OW. spicy and hot in the eye OW.

so i get a tissue and try to let the tears do their thing and eventually, eventually it calms down and it just feels like it looks red, but it doesn't really hurt anymore. okay, cautiously eat now. forget the transfer, just pull the noodles a little out of the bowl and bite them and i'll be okay. getting a little more confident, eating faster, chowing down and splash, into the OTHER GODDAM EYE. they feel okay now though and don't look any worse for wear.

leaving tomorrow morning, 36 hours in transit and i get home the same day. i miss yumyum.

Yay! Back to Yumyum, non-greasy food, cool nights (or at least not 300°), water from a tap, the English language, dryers, and normal eyes <3

I feel like you need protective goggles to eat noodles. You should invest!
