On this Wonderful Wednesday I am getting ready to say, “Good-bye glasses.” Most people alive today would never have seen me without my glasses, and if you did see me without my glasses I could not see you. In this case you may have thought I was snubbing you, because I was a stuck up snob. That was not the case. I am a little shy, and a little vain, but not a snob. I ignored you, because I had no idea that vague shape I saw was you.
At my most recent drivers license renewal, I nearly failed my eye exam, but with a little guessing I squeaked my way into getting my renewal. Be afraid! While I can see those large things like cars and trucks, those little things like street signs were increasingly becoming a problem. Thank you to whoever invented the GPS and all the science that led up to its creation.
What’s that I hear? Why didn’t I get my eyes checked? I thought of that. Every time I got my eyes checked, I was told my cataracts were not ripe yet.
My left eye is not bad. My right eye however is very bad. I am constantly trying to rub the fog from my eyes. The lights at night are huge, and I avoid driving then. Is my right eye so much worse than the left because of that snowball I got hit with when I was 12? It doesn’t matter, now the right eye will be fixed first, and I look forward to not being so dependent on glasses.
In the future, if I seem to be snubbing you, it is because I am trying to figure out what to write in my next blog, or I have forgotten your name yet again and am to embarrassed to own up to it. There is so much going on in my head.
