I got my new glasses. You guys! They are so cute!*
I had planned to only wear them while driving or at meetings. But, like most people who get glasses, I had no idea how visually-impaired I actually was until I put them on.
“How do they look?” the guy at Lens Crafters had asked me.
“Oh wow,” I said calmly, nodding at a poster across the store. “These are great.”
“Look out there,” he said, pointing behind me, out into the mall.
“HOLY $*&@!” I cried, with children nearby.
Did you know that I’ve been seeing things through a Barbara Walters Special fuzzy filter? I didn’t, until last night. I can still see things within arm’s reach (or slightly longer; my arms are short) at a 20/20 level, but anything further is appallingly cloudy.
I would love to wear them 24/7 (or I guess 16/7), but I’m very new to glasses and very prone to motion-sickness; if I’m not looking straight ahead while moving, I get a bit nauseous. Justin said I should pick all day or short spurts and just stick with it, but I’m still on the fence.
*The tortoiseshell frames match my tortoiseshell watch perfectly, so my co-workers decided that I now have to sit with my hand under my chin at all times.
P.S. That’s one of my new Anthropologie sweaters!
