Random Thought Alert
On my way to work, sitting in traffic, I was so tired, I felt like my eyes were crossing.
So I began to wonder... why does this happen? And does it really happen?
Are you so tired that the eyeball muscles relax, no longer able to hold themselves in place and they actually cross?
Do eyeballs even have muscles?
Or is it just a sensation you get, but your eyes remain firmly pointed forward?
I am pretty sure they don't stay pointed forward because my vision even gets blurry and skewed.
Is it even proper to say eyeballs "point" a certain direction?
What do you think? Does that happen to you? Why do you think it happens? And do you think the eyes literally cross?
I guess the more important question to be asking here is, am I a hazard to society if I am driving when I am so tired that I believe my eyes are crossing? You don't have to answer this one. It's more of a rhetorical question because the answer doesn't matter. I have to drive, crossing eyes or not.
