I am experiencing similar, albeit, not as irritating irritation this morning. But not to the point I have reached for the Eye Drops.

In years gone by I used to look forward to this event. I don't know when, exactly, I ceased finding this something I enjoyed, rather than endured. I think it was likely some time during the George W. Bush years. Obama's State of the Union addresses have been really bad, in my jaded opinion.
I am a big fan of soaring rhetoric. I am not a big fan of plodding rhetoric that causes me a wince reflex.
I wish I could say I am going swimming now. But I can't.
