I have been wearing glasses since age 11, and let me tell you those were some butt-ugly mofos back them. Light blue. Plastic. Cat-eye shape.
Now I am old, and have to wear, get this, TRI-effing-FOCALS
, otherwise known as "progressive lenses".
That makes them sound like your glasses give you well-funded schools, free health care, clean energy and good public transportation. But no. Hell no. It just means that a) I can't wear the cute little stylish frames, and b) I can't see a damn thing, near far or in between.
I have to wear them to drive or I will kill people, especially at night or in bad weather. I have to take them off to eat dinner or I can't see what's on my plate. And to read anything on my phone or on the computer screen, I have to keep bobbing my head up and down like Ted Haggard at a weenie roast.
I don't want to hear any complaining from the lot of you.
