I have a black eye

So I didn’t sleep well last night and when I woke and saw myself in the mirror, I had a start–I was sporting a bright red/purple and well-developed black eye–one which I have no idea how I acquired.
There are dozens of jokes I want to make about hitting myself in my sleep, bumping into my dog’s paw, having midnight moments I can’t recall, but truth is, I have absolutely no idea what happened.
It was a bit of a trip to walk into a staff meeting and say “Yes, I know I have a black eye, but no, I have no idea how I got it.”
Searched the web and aside from learning that if I had a headache my brain might be leaking, I still have no clue. Any useful ideas?

    I woke up with a black eye once; it was from dental work the day before. (The one I got at 14 came from another kid’s fist, so that was no mystery.)

    Hi susan
    Not to be alarmist, but please do get that checked out by a doctor right away. You don’t want to mess around with mysterious under-the-skin bleeding near the eye and the brain.
    Hope all’s well,
    – Amy

    Are you taking any sleep medication?
    some Ambien users report getting up, eating, and they’re still asleep.
    But I’m with Amy – so see a doctor.

    Exotic Ho Chi Minh City, still referred to as ‘Saigon’ by many, has preserved its distinctly Asian feel and ancient culture, where monks pray in the numerous pagodas, temples and mosques. The capital Hanoi, is a pleasant and charming city of lakes, shaded boulevards and public parks. The old quarter, built around the Hoan Kiem Lake, is an architectural museum-piece characterised by its narrow streets. Ha Long Bay, with its 3000-plus islands rising from the clear, emerald waters, dotted with beaches and grottoes created by waves, is one of Vietnam’s natural marvels.
