the yachtsman does not recommend eye surgery

The yachtsman had to have a little outpatient operation on his eye today. I was hoping to share with you a post-op photo of the damage (I was told he'd have a badass shiner), but in fact his eye is too scary for me to look at directly, let alone photograph and post on a bl*g that is ostensibly about reading, writing, and eating. So instead I offer this pre-op picture of the doctor's initials indicating which eye he was going to maim.


And because this bl*g is ostensibly about, among other things, eating, I will tell you that the patient requested breakfast for dinner when we got home, specifically pancakes and bacon. And I will also tell you the secret to very fluffy pancakes: Separate the eggs and beat the whites before folding them into the batter. I learned that in medical school.

  1. I demand a full-frontal eye pic. The Y-man shows me his, I will show him mine.

  2. now that we know what the yachtsman doesn't recommend, i, for one, would like to hear of a few things that the yachtsman does recommend.

  3. Yeah, MLC, what's up with all the negativity around here? And J Quizz, given that the Y-man wore sunglasses at work this morning, I don't think there's any chance he'll let me take photos to post online (though it looks much better today than it did last night, less like the eye of a zombie killer and more like the eye of a guy who's had some work done, Heidi Montag style).

  4. Sunglasses at work? Who does the Y-man think he is, the Puff Daddy or Rihanna of Seventh Generation?

    Those initials, by the way, look suspiciously like a sickle and hammer. Are you sure this supposed eye surgery wasn't a front for a commie lobotomy?

  5. Who on earth is Heidi Montag?

  6. EBids, Heidi Montag is a reality television twit whose latest claim to infamy is having had TEN cosmetic surgeries performed on her body in one day.

    And to think that if the Y-man had only had nine more surgeries yesterday he could have tied.

  7. Y-man, let it be known: In my book, from now on, any less than five surgeries within twenty-four hours will be considered pussing out.

  8. The Y-Man was already a Commie, J Quizzle. Or a Socialist Democrat or something. And I thought his wound was looking much better today but I sent a photo to Mojie and she sez it's true, maybe he should be wearing sunglasses indoors even at night.
