Ewww! Eyedrops! Get those things away from me no no no no no no you’re not putting something in my eye blink blink blink blink!
Okay, I admit it, I’m a princessey fairy wussy when it comes to eyedrops. Which is why I thought SQUICK SQUICK SQUICK when I first saw this product at Tokyu Hands. Despite their diabolically cheery faces, I assumed they were little torture devices used to keep your lower lid open and steady the bottle while aiming an attack at your defenseless eyeball.
But then I examined it more closely. Its actually works sort of like a funnel: You hook it on your lower lid and pull it out a little, then squeeze the drops onto the plastic thing instead of into your eye. The eyedrops run down the little slide into your eyelid pocket. Achievement Unlocked!
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
