Mine eyes have seen the glory...
For real. I am slowly losing my eyesight. In the old age kind of way. It's depressing.
More than wrinkles or droopy eyelids -this gets me. The gig is up. My indestructible boast-worthy perfect 20-20 eyesight is both a scam and a sham. It's over now. (cue bad singing w poor lighting)
My mom used to have me thread her sewing needles (she rarely sewed so it was infrequent, but I remember thinking, that's weird, why can't she see do this? She could do everythng else. She permed my hair!) I feel her pain.
I can't see the shades of my lipsticks anymore. (see my lipstick post, that's rough, and possibly dangerous.)
God forbid, I need to read the MEID number from behind the battery of a cell phone. In that case, I need to take a photograph then zoom in A LOT! I also have a hard time with some text messages
And tonight I couldn't read the dosage on some over the counter stomach stuff I purchased. Why is the font SO DANG small.
I need readers. Tomorrow I'm going to purchase some. It's not a big thing. I know its not, but putting down the mantle of youth feels like it will be.
