Embarrassing Myself As Usual!
I first suspected I needed glasses when I couldn't see the Math problems on the overhead projector in class. Even at the front I was squinting to see and I still couldn't see that well. I was in denial though because I did not want to wear glasses. I eventually gave in because I was not going to be able to learn to drive without them. They tested my eyesight and I was found out! A few embarrassing moments also forced me to make the final decision to get glasses. First off I would wave and smile to anyone who honked their horn at me assuming that if they are honking, it must be a friend or a neighbor, and since I couldn't see them properly it would be easier to just wave! Boy was I wrong. Almost got myself in trouble a couple of times doing that!! The straw that broke the camels back though was when I was leaving the office late one night it was dark and I was waiting for the bus. I saw the bus coming and put my hand out to stop it. I started to get really mad as I realized that it wasn't slowing down and had no intention of stopping for me. Until it got close enough for me to realize that it was an ambulance not a bus! Vanity would have to take a back seat!! So I gave in and got glasses, not that I wore them much. I wore them for driving and around the house only and occasionally to the office. I remember being in awe at how clear everything was and being able to see the bus coming for half a mile down the street. Oh yes and there was no more waving to perverts that I didn't know !!! Now I wear contacts and only wear my glasses at night when studying. Recently at an eye appointment the optician told me that my eyes were not 'happy' That I would have to wear my glasses more to let more oxygen get to my eyes. So I wear them to drop off the kids at school and weekends until my permeable lenses come in. I am thinking of wearing them to my Math class at college one day! We'll see. My husband thinks they look hot! Maybe he should wear them then ?
