The Love Eye

posted by on July 18 at 11:45 AM

In this image I find what I’m always looking for in a woman’s face: a lazy eye.
1497257611_l.jpg What is it that makes a lazy eye so special? And it can only be one lazy eye, not two. To find low lids on both eyes is to find a face that has been drugged. One eye must be alert, aware, and striking the surfaces of objects with its ray of vision. The other eye is the one caught between the sleeping world within and the awake world without. But why is this beautiful? Why is it sexy? What kind of love is this laziness?

charles, you oughta check into chow nasty's ode to less-than-perfect beauty called "lazy eye."

sample lyric--"i like the girls w the lazy eye. one on my pocket and the other in the sky.

and i like the girl w the extra toes. this little piggy went to market, who knows where the other one goes."

Weirdest sexual quirk evar. I like women with eyelids lowered somewhat, as long as its evenly and they look more relaxed/tired than drugged. Same reason too. Lazy-looking ladies are kind of cool/sexy somehow. Looks sensual. But a lazy eye? Eye-gads.

Ah...Charles likes foreheads AND lazy eyes. Dude your wife must be truly special.

Looks like the roofies are just starting to kick in.

Anthony Burgess created a charming character who liked 'em too. Instead of "lazy eye," he used the term "slight venerean strabismus." The Pagliacci guy/model who graced the "sexiest" cover this year had it completely down. Ahem.

I thought it was her tiger outfit that got you Chucker.

Is it sexy on a man as well?

Lazy eye is when one of your eyes doesn't see as well as the other. Children diagnosed with this have to wear an eye patch to strengthen the lazy eye. It has nothing to do with eyelids.

And now forevermore when I catch a glimpse of a certain photograph of myself on my wedding day, I will no longer flinch because of one infinitesimally-drooping eyelid, a flaw which had previously ruined my appreciation of said picture.

I reserve the right to flinch for other reasons, however, notably my newfound -- and sadly, quite unforgettable -- knowledge of Charles' taste in eyelids.

I slept with a guy in college once because he had a lazy eye (long story). He also had a crooked penis. Any correlation?

tiger outfit? TIGER OUTFIT?

chaz likes lazy things because commies are lazy.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | July 18, 2007 3:19 PM

interesting. i imagine a lot of kids today have this "corrected". Hence fewer droopy eyes in the future.

Posted by D. | July 18, 2007 4:25 PM

OK, now I think you're crazy.

I've chimed in recently on my like of differently-shaped eyes. The lazy eye, is something of a different matter. Maybe it's just me, I don't know. I'm always TALKING to the lazy eye, because I want it to pay attention and not let its mind drift, but then I worry about the numero-uno eye thinking I'm an asshole (which I'm not, quite the opposite - I'm probably one of your newest and greatest fans). So, out of self-consciousness, I start talking to the bridge of the nose, a bad habit I've found myself as yet unable to bridge.
