Removing the bruise

I survived my first rattle. Yet, I’m injured.

I’m sitting here holding an ice pack to my left eye because my acupuncturist prick me a tad wrongly. I left his office yesterday with a slight bruise. This morning I woke up to a lovely crescent shaped mark that cradles my left eye with gem-like colors that migrate between yellow and blue. Yes, sucker punched by my own practictioner. I know, I know, this should be the worst that happens to me, and accidents do happen. After all, it was just a month ago that I was knocked to the ground by child-like bicyclists whirling out of control as I peacefully strolled by Santa Monica’s Pier. LA’s version of hitting the pavement. (Bruises and scars.) But good lord! Getting socked in the eye — right before a scheduled promotional shoot! And to think I was worried about lines on my forehead being both visible and countable. Luckily I have two weeks, lots of makeup mastery and an armload of Arnica tablets.

And if traveling to LA anytime soon, I suggest you throw it into the make-up bag right along with your Listerine and Emergency-C paks. You will need it. From where I sit and strut, a lot of bruising goes on in this town, self-inflicted or not.

And as far as my acupunturist.
I did what any New York gal would do if she felt she had been pricked enough.
I sucker punched him right back.
