Today I had to face my mortality. The ever creeping of age and infirmity, thy name is optometrist.
I have presbyopia. It's a nice long word for you can't read things anymore! I have always been near-sighted. As in I can't see further than my elbow.
Now I've entered the land of the old lady and have to wear progressive lenses. Another large word for tri-focals but you don't see any lines.
Right now all I see is an old woman in the mirror. Boo hoo hoo.
