Giles walked into his kitchen and stared at the glass in confusion.

"Buffy, why is this glass empty?"

"Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you poured the water for me."

"You... you drank this?"

"It's just water. Geez, Giles, chill. I'll pour you another glass," she groused, setting down her magazine and getting up from the sofa.

"No, it wasn't. That glass held my contact lenses. I couldn't find my kit last night, so I improvised."

"Oh ewwwww! Ugh gross! God, I'm gonna be sick!"

While Buffy wigged out, he calmly headed up to the loft, muttering about retrieving his glasses.

HA! Nope... I used the word "glasses" to refer to his specs. I used the word "glass" to refer to the drinking vessel. So... there! :p

this managed to be both charming and kinda gross. LOL Thanks! My job here, is done! ;)

*Drops mic* Peace... out!

Ewwwww! But also lol.

As a contact lens wearer I can say that it's actually nice to see the bad thing happen to somebody ELSE instead of having the requisite lost/dried out/damaged/are-they-in-my-eye-or-not contact experiences that we go through. -_-

As I told you earlier, I think Buffy would have bounced in singing 'Macho Man' before chugging the dubious beverage. I hate to ask this, but did you... research any possible side effects of her drinking the lenses? *worries inordinately*

Yes, defininitely, Ewwww and then an lol. :)

You know, when I wore contacts, there was always something going on with them... dry eye, can't find my lens case, how can I possibly be out of solution, this is the last pair, really? oh shit, i forgot my overnight bag with my contacts stuff in it. It was infinite. So yeah, I totally hear you!

She definitely wouldn't be paying attention, that's for sure. But yes, I can see her bouncing in, mind on something else, singing along to something and just chugging. And no I didn't research side effects, because it was a glass of water, not solution, and well... Slayer constitution. LOL

You pretended to cheat, and I believe you did it on purpose.

Also, hahahahahaha. Nice job.

Loved this little drabble.

As some one who has had to 'improvise' with small glasses of water; I can totally see this happening.

Thank you so much! :D

Oh I am totally right there with you. Been there and done that. I figured it wasn't so much of a stretch. LOL
