it all looks better now
If you don't look at it you can't see it and if you can't see it then it's not real. There is too much of a slip between the eye and the lips because if you can't see it you can't say it. There are too many things out there you can't unsee and now the problem has been solved.
The eyes may be the windows to the soul but that means there's a way for monstrous beasties and creatures of the night to steal it. It may be small, it may be practically brand new, it may be slightly grey, but they still can't have it. If it's worth stealing then it's worth keeping and the windows now have bars on them.
You may think it's extreme but when you have a precious and when you know what things are out there to see then you must take drastic action to protect everything. It all makes so much sense now. To live a fulfilling life of denial of the world around you then this is the only way to do it.
Next, it's the ears.
