Have you ever played this trick with your specs? Just remove them for a minute, and keep them at a 15 cm distance from your eyes. Focus the glass on your shoes, and voilà! You’ve got tiny shoes!
Oh wait. Silly me. You don’t have specs!
My friend taught me this trick today in school. She had been wearing glasses since the fourth grade. She knows so many tricks. And she promisedthat she will teach me a few every day!
But who actually wants tiny shoes? I want heel shoes! But dad says I’ll trip over them and break my glasses along with my nose. So maybe I’ll just have to wait till I get my lenses.
Coming to the topic of lenses, here’s what the same friend warned me about:
1. You can’t sleep with your lenses.
2. You can’t have a bath with lenses.
3. Your lens could shift from where it is actually supposed to be. And then you need to start searching for it immediately, which is really painful. She gave me the example of searching for a needle that has fallen in the slushy mud. EEEWWW!!!
4. If you lose it, you won’t be able to find it. Coz you are blind. And you won’t be able to search for your glasses either.
Ugh! If wearing lenses is such a pain, I’d rather relax and wear my specs only.
After all, it’s not rocket science to figure out how to wear specs.
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!
