One night, I was about to propose to my girlfriend, when my roommate Joseph barged into the room out of nowhere, tripped, fell over and broke my glass table with his face. Totally ruined the mood. Now, I didn’t know Joseph THAT well, I didn’t even know where he was from, but since he was my roommate, I put my plans on hold to help him through his injuries.
Joseph had gotten a big glass shard in his eye, making him completely blind in that eye. He had to go about his life with one of those cotton pads in his eyes for a couple of months. Then suddenly, he disappeared……along with my girlfriend.
I later found out that they’d both had bonded after his injuries and eloped together, leaving me behind without as much as a note. I tried to track both of them down, but never could.
In conclusion, if it hadn’t been for cotton eye Joe, I’d have been married a long time ago. Where’d you come from? Where’d you go? Where’d you come from, cotton eye Joe?
