Whose Eye is it Anyhow?

Black Eye

The eye meme has been going around again (I think it's seasonal), and Bright Star has decreed we are doing variations on the theme.

Here is an eye photo taken just this morning. My question to my readers is this: Which member of the household does this eye belong to?

1)jo(e) who was attacked by a falling branch in her own woods
2) Boy in Black after taking a frisbee in the eye
3) Shaggy Hair Boy during a risky dance move
4) Skater Boy after attempting a pop shove-it
5) With-a-Why putting on eye make-up for a school play
6) Sailor Boy catching the boom after an uncontrolled jibe
7) Older Neighbor Boy after a face plant into asphalt
8) Philosophical Boy catching an elbow while playing the guitar
9) First Extra jabbed with his own golf club
10) Blonde Niece after a fierce lacrosse game

Ooo! Fun! I don't think anyone ACTUALLY made a formal guess on mine, though. :(

I vote 2. Looks painful, whoever it is!

Process of elimination is that I don't think it's yours...your eyes are lighter...I think.

Pilgrim/Heretic said...

Can't guess... these all sound equally (and entertainingly) plausible!

Friday Mom said...

The brown eyes and long eyelashes are a dead give away that's it one of your kids. Hair's too short to be Shaggy Hair, and too long to be With-a-Why. I say #2: Boy in Black took a frisbee to the eye. Ouch!

It certainly can't be blonde niece. I'm with Friday Mom on this one.

Not a blonde. And would asphalt have that effect?

RageyOne said...

By process of elimination I say #2.

The bruise looks painful. However, the eye color is beautiful!

Dr. Brazen Hussy said...

I think it's #5 because the colors are so pretty!

claire (yt) said...

Definitely one of yours. I'm going with number two, too.

My first inclination was #2, but the hair is sort of shaggy...definitely not you or blonde niece. I can easily picture a boom doing that to someone, but I don't know who sailor boy is, so I'm going to stick with Boy in Black. In any case, ouch!

ScienceWoman said...

Oops-anonymous above is me. Not that it matters.

angrygrad said...

I vote for #9.

kathy a said...

i'll guess 8 -- but what do i know?

Rob Helpy-Chalk said...

It gotta be 5, because the purple goes right up to the eye, including the lower eyelid.

jo(e) said...

Those of you who guessed it was Boy in Black were right. He was playing Ultimate Frisbee in the field across the street and took a frisbee in the eye.

I didn't take the photo -- I don't find injuries funny myself -- but he took a photo and was sending it to friends and family via email. I had to crop it to protect his anonymity but the larger photo that shows his whole face, his expression, and his crazy shaggy hair is much better.

BrightStar said...

Looked really painful!

Leslee said...

My gut feeling says #2

timna said...

ben t. has a black eye since last thursday. it's starting to get green streaks now. (it was from wrestling with big kids before the state tournament).

didn't think to take a picture of it, though.

undine said...

I'm guessing Boy in Black.

Kris said...

First extra with the golf club (in the study!)

Jessica said...

You've no idea how nice it is to realize that other mom's besides me know about "pop shove-its".

Sigh.
