This story is bound to get progressively funnier — to someone anyway.
It seems the time has come — can I get a drum roll? — for progressive lenses.
In a few more days, I will no longer have to play that weird game with my glasses so I can read a book, newspaper or food label. You know, the one that goes: Push them down to the end of my nose; now remove them altogether and press reading material against nose; wipe newsprint from nose, put glasses back in proper spot and hold reading matter as far away as arm will allow; no maybe the tip of the nose again.
Catherine is rejoicing because, well, like nearly everything else I do, my eyewear calisthenics are embarrassing. (Sadly, the kid is right; I caught a photo of myself taken during a holiday party, in which I was doing the glasses thing trying to read the gift I’d just opened. It was not terribly attractive. And believe me, I need all the help I can get.)
The eye doctor assured me my eyes are behind schedule for this big change. “They are aging rather slowly,” she said.
I just hope they alerted my other vital organs to the schedule.
Oh my gosh! I just posted about this on my blog as well. The last time I heard the word “transition” I was in labor. Now you’re telling me I need “transition” glasses-. doesn’t my 94 year old grandma wear those? I don’t give a rip that they don’t have the line across the lense anymore! I’m too young for this stuff! And the kids frames… me too!!! I tried on 3 kid glasses and one tiny adult. Was so happy I could get the adult ones. Now why can’t i fit in kid pants?
p.s. found you on Bloggy Moms and so happy about that fact!
LOL, Vicky! I can’t fit into kids pants, but I can wear a growing girls size 3 shoe! They end up being a little too sparkly for my taste, though! Glad we found each other on Bloggy Moms. I’m headed for some normalcy with my breakfast now!
Can’t wait for my husband to join your “club”. He never has the right glasses/lenses needed! I am sure they look beautiful on you. Hopefully they won’t make you dizzy. Just my regular ones bothered me for a while till I got used to the new angles.
Yes, I can hardly wait. It’ll be another week or so before they are ready. My face is so small, I wound up with kids’ frames! The savings was more than offset by the cost of the lenses. I darn well better like them!
Congratulations on joining the lazy arm club. So now what kind of exercise will you replace your eyeglass calisthenics with? 😉 Found you through Bloggy Moms.
Thankfully, I’m a Jazzercise instructor, so there is no shortage of exercise where I’m concerned! Thanks for stopping by; come back again!
Love your sense of humor, Terri, and so happy you have connected with your original family! It is so empowering to finally discover the truth about yourself, a fact that is very difficult to explain to those outside the world of adoption.
Thanks, Susan. Gotta keep the humor front and center no matter what else is happening. It’s the laughs that get me through. 😉
