Folks just don't say that word anymore.
It's kinda a creepy word now. Folks just say eyes.
"You have beautiful eyes!"
"You have beautiful eyeballs."
"I need to have my eyes checked."
"I need to have my eyeballs checked." (Ewwwwww!)
See? You hear the word eyeballs and it conjures up old EC comics or weird horror movies. Eyeballs are scary. Eyes are beautiful.
I'm touching my eyes right now. For no real reason. If I was touching my eyeballs you'd know something bad was about to happen.
Six eyes of one, half a dozen eyeballs of another.
Half a dozen eyeballs is wicked creepy. Six eyes is just three people.
Looking at me. With their eyeballs.
Their creepy demon infested eyeballs!
Point of the story?
Hillary has eyeballs....Mitt Romney has dreamy brown eyes.
