Do you remember that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine went around NYC buying up all the Today’s Sponges she could find because they were discontinuing them? She would wind up hoarding them and then had to decide if the men she wanted to sleep with were “spongeworthy”. I probably think about this episode more than I should, but a) Elaine basically shaped my entire personality, so I trust her above anyone and b) there are times in my life where something has been in short supply and I too have to decide if they are “spongeworthy”.
LIKE RIGHT NOW.
I have a box of BLAQ Eye Masks that I received in a subscription box last year. It was a full-size item, so there were five in the box. Y’all. I’m OBSESSED with these tiny, gooey, never-know-if-I’m-applying-them-right eye thingys. They feel amazing and legit help with these mom-bags from hell that I now have under my eyes. Even Joe, who doesn’t notice anything beauty-related, commented on my eyes after using them. He said, “It’s weird to look at you. You look super young right now with your tight eyes.” Lol, I’ll take it.
But, I’m down to two sets. TWO. The next time I use them, I’ll only have ONE set left and then poof, they’ll be gone. I know what y’all are thinking– BUY SOME MORE LISA.
They are 29 real dollars, plus tax and shipping, for a pack of five. I’m invested in not looking like a baseball glove in my 50s and 60s, but I’m also cheap as hell.
So, now I’m debating on whether or not to use my second to last set before I venture to see La Traviata at the Met tonight*. Is Verdi “BLAQworthy”? Y’all…I just don’t know.

*I won’t pay $29 for some eye strips, but I would pay $29 to see some fine-ass opera in NYC. But these tickets were a gift, because, like I said– cheap as hell over here.
