Bifocals!!! Me???

OK, as bad as you hate to admit it, you just can’t see as well as you did once.  There are several “warning signs”. For instance, you go to lunch with a friend and the waiter comes to take your order.  So you point at the  “nachos” on the menu and say, “I’ll have the chicken alfredo, please!”  Then on the way home you take out a mailbox and pull into the wrong driveway!  Time to make an appointment to have an eye exam. The results are in.  The doctor says you need bifocals!  Oh no!  You thought maybe you could get some of those pretty colored contact  lenses!  Defeated, you go in to pick out your frames.  An hour and a half later, you choose the first ones you looked at and sit down to be “measured” for the lenses. You are delighted to find out that there are “lineless” bifocals, so no one can tell you are wearing them!  Of course they cost extra, but well worth it!  The doctor has told you that you will have to wear the glasses all the time, so you get the kind that transitions to sunglasses when you go outside.  Five hundred dollars later, it’s finally done! A week goes by and your glasses are ready, so you go to have them fitted.  When you try them on and look around, everything looks so different, and you are not sure if that’s good or bad.   You leave the store walking like you are in a marching band, and make it to your car.  All the while you are thinking, ” I sure am glad I have that handicap sign!”
