This is kinda like that nose hair post I did a year or so ago. As we age, our bodies change, and remind us constantly that we are no longer young. It does suck.
Now, ahem, cough and guffaw, having had glasses since I was, oh, about 4
, I simply cannot relate to some of the aforementioned resistance to wearing glasses. I appreciate that as we age, its sometimes more difficult to make changes, and especially subtle ones, like how we choose to see things.
The very first thing I do in the morning is put on my glasses. I don't walk without them, otherwise I'd fall over a sleeping dog or two. Glancing over them now as I type this message, all I see is a blurry mess. Nothing distinct, or even close to being readily discernable as a letter, or number. I wish I had the ability to see something, anything, without them. But alas, 'twas not in the cards for old Geeders.
I'll refrain from making futher comments about the blind leading anyone, for surely I'd get lost if I weren't wearing my specs. Without them, I see as much as Helen Kellar and Stevie Wonder. I'm on my third pair of progressives. As for the size of the various parts of the lens that magnify, they do suck because I have a small lens. Being fashionable and sighted I have learned can be a contradiction in terms.
Bring back those big-assed lenses of the 70's and 80's!
