I’ve told all my friends in school to eat more carrots and not read under blankets.
I’ve also told them not to watch much TV or stare at the computer/video game screen for longer durations.
I’ve also promised mom that I will wear my spectacles 24×7 except when sleeping. And not sit too close to the TV.
I told Dad to teach me some asanas or any exercise that will help me see better.
I’ve also told that friend of mine to not teach me tricks, but to teach me ways to keep my specs thin and shiny, just like his.
I don’t know what else to do. Can you suggest some tips, dear diary?
Anyways, it’s time for me to go shopping now. Can you think of some other things that may help me improve my eyesight? And not give mom more heart attacks?
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 that you enjoyed these posts! It’s been an amazing week interacting with you folks. Do share your memories of the #BarAThon in the comments, and tweet about it too!
