A Bit Out of It
When I left for work yesterday morning, I was just a bit “out of it”. After getting into the car I noticed that the windshield was a bit fogged up, so I turned on the defogger and backed out the driveway. By the time I got to the end of our street (less than a mile), I was concerned that the defogger wasn’t working–I still couldn’t see real well. So I figured my glasses must be fogged up and reached up to grab them.
At this point, I poked myself in the eye. Apparently I had forgotten to put them on. So after five minutes of circling back, I made it home safely, retrieved my glasses, and started on my way with a much clearer field of view.
I started wearing glasses my Junior year in high school. I probably should have started much sooner, but it took some convincing my parents that I really couldn’t see things that were going on. I got them on a Saturday and convinced myself that I was only doing it for my parents benefit and that I would take them off every day before going to school. Since I could actually see much better with them, I never did take them off. And I have been wearing them ever since.
