That made me laugh so much.
I don't mind crying...

But I might wear sunglasses, wrap a rounds.

This is genius!

Brian Miller said...

ha. so how long after cutting them do you have to leave that on? smiles.

Lena said...

Ha, now that's an idea :)

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh yes. The secret to cutting onions is to not inhale. Just breathe out as much as you can. Ya, I doensn't always work.

Yes 8/8 is my last infusion day or the 6th and finale chemo, but it has up to 3 weeks to still cause chemo symptoms. So by Labor Day I should be feeling great!!! ♥ to you!

Theresa Mahoney said...

OMG, that is so great! Those darn onions make my eyes pour tears every time I cut them. I need to invest in a helmet!

MikiHope said...

Now that took initiative. As far as I am concerned it is a pretty good idea!

Good idea, you can also use the swimming goggles!

I think it's brilliant. Yes I do.

That's hilarious! Reminds me a little when our older son heard Skylab was falling, and proceeded to wear his football helmet around the house all day.

Ruchira Khanna said...
