If you are my facebook friend you saw this update Thursday night...
New progressive Bifocals. I'll be fine as long as I never move my head again.
The problem with being 54 is that your EYES are also 54. I have been making do with reading glasses for 10 years. I own about 8 pairs because I lose them and find them and lose them and find them.
Lately I have been having a lot of headaches and teary eyes. When I read for a long time, then took off the glasses my distance vision was fuzzy for about an hour.
Off to the discount eye place. I got my prescription and went out to pick my frames. I tried on about 10 pairs and decided on the cutest black rectangles with a few lines of bling on the earpieces. They were also the most comfortable pair.
I handed them to the clerk, she looked at my prescription and said "that will come to $600" and Mr Sunshine said "NO &%$#ing WAY!"
I sent the following text message to Sorority Girl...
In my blindness I picked out Vera Wang frames. They were so pretty.
Duh!! Vera Wang!
The clerk said if I pick out frames from the WALL OF UGLY GLASSES that I could get 2 pairs for about $245. Four hours later I walked out with semi-ugly brown frames. I'm getting used to finding the sweet spot for reading and where to situate my laptop.
But I would have looked much cuter with the Vera Wang glasses.
