I haven’t had adequate vision since I was in the fourth grade. I knew something was up once it became harder and harder to read the chalkboard during class, and at first, I was actually excited. All the people in my immediate family wore glasses. Some to read, others all day, every day to see, and I thought I was being inducted into some elite club. A girl was going to get her first pair of glasses!
But they were the first of many.
I soon realized that while glasses can be cute, there is nothing awesome about not being able to see clearly. And since I’m both nearsighted and farsighted (with a dash of astigmatism), it’s really not where it’s at. So after struggling to find my glasses this morning, I thought it would be fun to discuss, with fellow bespectacled beings, certain issues (funny and not so comical) only people with bad vision understand.
