A small boil

I had a small boil pop up a week ago. It was probably the size of a grain of sand.

But, it popped up in the corner of my right eye.

So, I experienced two days of continuous, sometimes excruciating, pain. Every blink hurt. It was a result of being out of balance.

Thanks to warm compresses and a return to normalcy, it became smaller and eventually disappeared.

The same boil in a different part of my skin wouldn’t even have registered. But, in my eye, it dominated my thinking.

Context matters.
