Here’s a list of things that I don’t know about spectacles. Told to me by dad.
- I have to clean my specs regularly, or else I’ll have trouble looking at things. It would feel like looking through a dirty window.
- Spectacles are easier to scratch than mobile phone screens. When I asked dad why we don’t put scratch-guard’s on them, I got no answer.
- I can’t change the colour of my spectacle frames everyday. I was so hoping that I could get rid of the golden frames!
- When I asked dad whether lenses were a viable option, he said that I don’t really want lenses at such a young age. I wonder why!
- I should keep my specs in one particular place every night before going to sleep. Or else I’ll never be able to find it in the morning when I wake up.
- I tried performing the Impervius spell on my specs while having a bath. (For those of you who don’t know what this Harry Potter spell is, it’s a spell that makes anything waterproof.) It didn’t work at all!
- The glasses on the specs fog up every time you exit a air-conditioned room. Just experienced this when I was leaving the classroom in the break. Trust me, dear diary, I didn’t even know what happened. I started feeling my way to the washroom, much to the delightful laughter of my classmates 😦
- Dad also reminded me that i’ll have to be careful while playing games in the recess or in the PE period.
That’s all for today. I’ll keep adding to this list when I experience more ‘important lessons for spectacled geeks’.
Hola! In case you’re wondering whether this post is a throwback to one of my diary entries, let me correct you.
I’m participating in Blog-A-Rhythm’s Bar-A-Thon! This entire week, I will be posting daily, based on the prompts given at BAR’s blog. Each post will be presented in a diary entry format. I have selected a theme to base my posts on, and the theme is “The Spectacled Journey”.
Many of us may or may not remember those weird days when we were diagnosed as myopics and given glasses to wear. This theme celebrates those fearsome days, which now serve as fodder for jokes and nostalgic memories.
I do hope you enjoy these posts! Do follow my blog to stay in touch with the recent posts in this series, and don’t forget to share the comment love!
