2013—Day 343—Four Eyes

One day, when I was in the fifth grade, I came home from school and told my mother I couldn’t see the blackboard. I’ve worn corrective lenses ever since. My oldest brother (who also wears glasses) laughed and called me “Four Eyes” and told me I’d have to wear Coke bottle lenses. I was horrified and I suppose that contributed to my obsession to get contact lenses in high school. I’ve actually worn contact lenses for 50 years but I do have back-up glasses. One of my Flickr group’s challenges this week is “something I wear” and I realized my glasses would make a good photograph when I took them off this morning and threw them onto the kitchen table.
