In retrospect, I have made many, many mistakes.

One of those mistakes was eating a lunch involving Thai peppers before putting in my eyedrops.

@andrhia I learned the hard way that it is vital to wash my hands thoroughly after assembling a sandwich containing jalapeño peppers, because even rubbing my eye a little afterward can put enough capsaicin into a contact lens that there’s no way to get it out...

@andrhia Fortunately it was the kind of soft lens that only has 2–3 weeks wear time.
