The other day I got up and my eyes were literally glued together. I couldn’t understand why. I wasn’t sick, my eyes weren’t swollen, no pink eye. ????? When I got to work my co-workers were all talking about the vog and how bad it was. Sure enough I looked out toward Lana’i and the haze was so thick, Lana’i was only a slight outline in the distance. (Did I mention that my office is ocean front? well, I guess you get the picture you can turn green with envy later) Anyway I started to wonder if it was the vog that caused my sticky eyes?
Surfer Girl could feel an on coming migraine and two others were complaining about sinuses. Could it be the dastardly vog? Come to think of it, Haole Girl gets an uncomfortable skin rash and another friend has been off from work for two months. I was curious, were there many researches done on the effects of vog? ? No. I went on line and zip, nada, well none that can definitely give a signed, sealed and delivered stamped finding.
Then it got me thinking…is vog the THE new excuse that may replace all time favorites like “My dog ate my homework?”
Hmm…So it got me thinking… if you’re late for work—Blame it on the Vog, you get pulled over for speeding, you ate the last piece of cake, you forgot to pay your phone bill, you missed your dentist appointment, and of course you kissed THAT guy–by all means, Blame it on the Vog.
