I just got back from the optometrist with my first pair of bifocals. (Thanks, Ben!) Progressives, actually, and I guess these things take some getting used to, don’t they? I stopped in at the market on my way home, and when I moved my head around while looking down an aisle I felt like I was watching a bad student film project from the 60s. Weird. But I suppose my neurons will eventually adjust and trick me into thinking that everything is OK. Or will they? I actually don’t wear my glasses very much, so it might take a while for my brain to figure out the new order of things. We’ll see. In the meantime, hopefully I’ll be able to watch TV and do a crossword puzzle at the same time once again.
