… may be changing. Soon. I think.
Glasses were never a part of the equation, or so I thought. Nothing is definitive, of course, until I actually make an appointment with an optometrist to decipher whether or not my new moniker would be “four eyes” to which I would respond, “I prefer, Clark Kent!” (without the physique and the superpowers)
I’m not sure whether or not the derogatory term for a person who wears glasses is even still used today, but I suspect that a few old timers out there still coin the phrase now and then, right? (probably not) I’ve noticed that I am starting to have to squint when looking at an oversized dry/erase board while at work and few other objects/words in the distance are (gulp) blurry/fuzzy. I suspect that the ethos is trying to tell me something (more likely it’s my eyes telling me and not some sort of spiritual manifestation).
This “situation” could not have come at a perfect time; what with my getting back into reading and all! On the flip-side, I’ve been told that I look rather cool with glasses and quite dashing! (I’m looking at you, biased wife). Now, to find an affordable optometrist under my medical plan!
UPDATE: I am officially wearing glasses.
