I've been generally under the weather lately. It's winter, and I've kind of come to expect it. I was hoping that all would be awesome with the general avoidance of allergens, but I've still not been great, even when I am really good.
And so it slipped past my radar unnoticed.
I haven't had an eye check since primary school. And I was always feeling tired, my eyes were getting sore, and I was getting a lot of headaches. Eventually, I clicked, and went to get my eyes tested.
I am no longer the only person in my family without glasses.
I am shortsighted, not that much, and I need to wear my glasses all the time.
I got them on Saturday, so I got to wear them for church yesterday. Here are the three best reactions (in order of occurance):
Joab: Is your hair styled different? (I glare.) Oh, maybe it's just the glasses. (I punch him towards his glasses, but stop before I get there, because glasses are expensive).
Lionel: You know, you actually look not too bad in glasses. (Okay, I only like that one because I'm vain)
Shaun: Is this someone new? (Holds out hand for me to shake. I twist it. Apparently, random acts of aggression gave the game away.) Wow, you look DORKY in glasses. I said that he was just jealous because my IQ had gone up 20 points, and now my eyes were magnified and his are normal sized.
I would just like to say, I do NOT look dorky in my glasses.
