When Joey first told me my right eye was red I shrugged it off as mild irritation because we were sitting next to a satay stall.
Then Pek San came. And he told me it was red too.
Then Ham confirmed it was because he could name the symptoms I was feeling.
I went to the doctor the next day. The worst is confirmed, its conjungtivitis.
I sent a text message to my dad about it and first reply was "Use the medicine as prescribed. Take care." But then another one came in.. "Come back only when you're thoroughly cured"
Of all the mean and sad things to say to your first born!
