Seeing things

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Arab guy did my other eye yesterday, and holy cow, can I ever see!

There’s been a crack in the plaster of our bedroom ceiling for years. Never really paid any attention; I could barely see it…

Now it looks like the entire ceiling’s on the verge of collapse!

And can I ever see where a coat of paint is required… EVERYWHERE!!!

Noticed the garden hose when I pulled in the drive today, and suddenly realized I haven’t shut off the water to the outside tap.

Oh no! We’ve been in winter for a week already!

Last time I forgot to turn off the water the pipe split, and we had a little waterfall coursing down the basement wall, a mere couple of inches away from the electrical panel. Just got around to fixing that this summer. Hope I got it in time; otherwise I guess I can fix it again in the spring. Point is, I wouldn’t have thought about it had I not noticed the garden hose, and till now I’ve never noticed it, ever.

I can rattle off the 20/20 line on the eye chart with either eye, a first in my lifetime. The downside is I need reading glasses to read. And also for other stuff like seeing what screwdriver I need to remove the handle from the outdoor tap. And trimming my nails. And shaving. And… well, anything that you’d normally move closer to your eye to get a better look at.

I’m also learning about reading glasses. First pair were Foster Grants from the Rexall. Thirty bucks.

Then I found a pair of Foster Grants at the Looney Tooney for five bucks.

Today I went to Dollarama and got a pair of no names for $1.25. I thought 1.25 was the strength, till I got to the checkout and found out that was the price.

Holy moly, I’ve been buying glasses for fifty years, and I don’t remember a pair coming in under $400 in years!

There’s obviously one hell of a mark-up on this stuff!
