A Black Hole?

I really liked it when I wore contacts. I would put them in my eyes in the morning and take them out at night. Most of the time I knew where they were although occasionally they seemed to have gone so far into my head that retrieval may have been easier to fish them out my ear!

From the contacts I went to contacts plus reading glasses. My contacts were correcting for far and farther vision and my glasses were correcting for near and nearer.

Now I have a pair of glasses that was supposed to have pretty much every innovation available on the market. They were supposed to be the ultimate solution, or at least as ultimate as you can get. Then the Macular Degeneration hit. I wear these things about half of the time. The rest of the time l lose them.

It’s not that they are totally useless. I need the glasses for far vision. But far vision is required for only a fraction of my day. Putting my nose on the paper or the screen and using my assistive technology, I have found the glasses make what I see blurrier, not clearer. I take my glasses off.

I take my glasses off and they disappear. Poof! Magic? A black hole following me around? Dunno, but they are GONE.

This morning I spent a good quarter of an hour looking for my glasses. Do you know how frustrating it is when you can remember where and when you last had something, canvas that place and all of the ‘usual suspects’ places and still nothing turns up? Grrrrrrrrrr!

After I found the glasses (they had made a daring leap from the bathroom sink and hidden in the clothes I had taken off last night and left on the floor. (Not Susie Homemaker or Becky HomeEcy, remember?), I made a decision. I was going to put the glasses on a chain. (Sigh. When did we become our elderly, high school English teachers?).

I dug out a canary yellow, stretchy plastic glasses chain. The whole package now is a little larger and YELLOW. Should be easier to find. Being able to just drop the glasses and have them hang around my neck should be a plus, too.

Only one question: if I actually follow through with this plan, what am I going to do with my extra time?
