20140325-225844.jpgMe sporting my new bifocals last night. I mean Progressives.

So as it turns out, I did need new glasses–not just new glasses, but bifocals. Ugh. Old lady glasses. But of course most of my friends have them, and they are most definitely not old ladies. George has them too, and he isn’t old either. So maybe it won’t be so horrid to wear them…except that now that I have them, I can’t see, everything is all wiggly wobbly (to quote my friend Vanessa, who got her Progressives last week). However, it was a perfect conversation topic today as I chatted with my elderly aunt; we really went to town on the topic of eye drops. Well, technically, at 83, I suppose she qualifies as elderly, but she does not exactly seem old to me, or anyone else. I save my best dirty jokes to share with her, and loves them.

So maybe age really is a state of mind, as the saying goes. In which case I can stay a red haired hellion for years into the future? And my new glasses do seem (fingers crossed) to be keeping the migraines at bay, for which I would practically trade my soul. Or my old glasses anyway.

Even with bifocals. Progressives, to be exact. And soon my bifocal contact lenses will arrive! I’ll probably start getting carded again once I have those in…

  1. Very cute! I was prescribed bifocals when I was 24… I refused them and tried going back and forth between near- and far- glasses. It was a disaster! It’s great you can’t see that dreaded line in the middle of the lenses πŸ™‚

    1. Oh my Gosh, I remember my mom’s bifocals with that ginormous line in the center. So glad that’s no longer there–and now they even have bifocal contact lenses!!!
