Our science teacher taught us that eating carrots is good for our eyesight as it is strong in Vitamin A. I wish I had learnt this info a little earlier.
Our gym instructor told us that some seven exercises are good for making eyesight strong. Why didn’t I spend more time doing them instead of reading books under blankets?
Maybe I could have spent a little less time on the TV. And spent more in the garden, watering plants. Or more time cooking with mom. Or even gone for a walk with Grandma. Or just spent a little less time with the TV.
Anyhow, it doesn’t make any difference to reality now, does it? I have to wear my specs anyway.
I wonder why Popeye never wore specs. Or for that matter, none of the superheroes wear specs. At least they don’t wear them when they’re in their avatar. None of the actors in Avatar also had specs.
Even Taylor Swift wears specs only to look geeky.
Why then, do they always look beautiful with specs? And why do I end up looking like a buck-toothed beauty with over-large eyes?
But there’s one thing I’ve always wondered about: Harry Potter never got a chance to watch much TV, nor did he get any books to read or video games to play. How did he get specs then?!?!?!?!
Oh wait, his dad had specs.
Danggit, I can’t think no more.
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!
