If you wear glasses, you can maybe relate. Maybe.

Only those who wear glasses understand the awkwardness that happens when you take them off. Where is everything? The world becomes a giant blur.

So it's maybe understandable that one woman might make a stomach-turning mistake and try to glue an insect on her eye. Maybe.

Cakemaker Molly Robbins from Lancashire, England, tweeted a stomach-churning photo on Saturday that her mom, Judy, had reportedly sent her:

"Text from mum - having trouble sticking lashes on without her glasses.. turns out she was trying to glue a dead fly to her eyelid. I'm out," Robbins wrote alongside a photo of a clump of false eyelashes next to what looks like a very dead fly.

The internet was horrified! And skeptical!

Molly's aunt, Kate Robbins, a singer, stepped in to defend and clarify:

And Molly herself was a bit disturbed that her tweet had attracted so much attention:

Speaking of those giant cakes, they are pretty impressive — Molly has won several awards for her edible work:

So let's hope the cakes get the attention they deserve post-flylash gaffe. And let's hope Molly's mom has recovered from the trauma. Shudder.
