I spent the better part of the morning whining about how much my eye hurts, splashing water into my eye in the bathroom, pounding on my desk, and whimpering.
Then Kevin got me eye drops. And now I am fine. This is like the time when my sunburned friend Pete discovered that aloe is soothing. Or that time when Pam had to crush up aspirin into Michael Scott's afternoon snack to countereffect the foot burn from his George Foreman grill.
Mostly there are remedies for everything. Many of them are over-the-counter.
