Yeah, eyepatches can make people look bad-ass, just say that you were in a heated sniper duel and the both of you shot at the same time and you managed to shoot the opposing sniper in the forehead, killing him instantly and his bullet grazed your eye as you tried to avoid the bullet. :)
bees do suck. OP: Your eyelid didn't swell because you're allergic. It swelled because that's what happens when you get stung there. I know because it happened to me, and I am NOT allergic. Unless you had to use a hypodermic needle/go to the hospital for more than your eye not opening, you're not allergic. Go with the eyepatch. Pirates are cool.
It's not really "badass", but walking around with an eyepatch isn't really weird. Everyone just assumes you hurt your eye, and won't think much of it. They WOULD be freaked out by your swollen eye though. If I see someone in an eyepatch, I assume they scratched their cornea or something. I bet no one will even ask about it. Also, get some antihistamines, that should take the swelling down a bit.
Why can't you just skip the first day or 2. I'm sure if you, or your parents call the school and explain the situation i'm sure they would understand
I don't think OP is ALLERGIC per se. Everyone is "allergic" to the degree that they swell up around the sting (just like ant, mosquito, spider, etc bites) so it seems like OP is having a very normal reaction. I'd go with the eye patch--and a black one at that. Growl a lot...
