Most people around my age,
Already have them for a few years.
Some never did.
Others like me, never checked
Because my eyes see fine.
Well that's 50% correct.
My left eye is perfect.
Sees everything properly.
My right eye has a stigmatism.
Or is it astigmatism?
I need reading glasses.
I'm exact opposite to my son
Who also thought his eyes were fine.
We are mirror images, but he uses his for computer.
I won't be.
My daughter needs fulltime glasses.
My wife has had them for longer than I knew her.
My side of the family all have them.
I suppose I was doomed.
I almost got 44 years though.
First the hair, then the eyes.
I don't want to know what's next.
Oh yeah, Drive-Clean!
That's worse.
