I know, I know–I already know–I should’ve listened to my mother. I did not even need those reading glasses. But the way they were displayed at the grocery store–on that giant, plush, stuffed giraffe–it was like kryptonite. I could not resist them. Plus, giraffe is my power animal!
I was slow about it though. It’s not like I started wearing the glasses at the checkout stand. I started wearing them casually– at home. I was reading one of my favorite books, Fragrant–The Secret Life of Scent, by Mandy Aftel. Does that say 4 or 5 drops of ylang ylang? I had absolutely no choice–I was forced to put the glasses on. Yes, 4 drops– phew! Thanks new glasses!
But–just like my mother predicted– I started to rely on the glasses. It happened super fast too. Oh, I’m fine. My eyes are fine. I’m just using the glasses temporarily–for accuracy, just to double check–only when needed.
Now–my glasses dependency is making me buy crazy things. Last week, I bought one of those eyeglass chains–like the kind librarians wear– to keep their glasses ready for action. Woohoo, this librarian look is the best–it’s totally me. I also bought some Hush Puppies.
Oh, if only I’d bought that giant-plush-stuffed giraffe instead of those adorable glasses. Maybe now I’d be a cacao farmer or even a ceramicist. Didn’t you know–giraffes are wish fulfilling, prophetic, supernatural, non-mythical creatures! It’s because they stay away from fluoride and are very mindful of their thoughts. They are totally in tune with their third eye.
But–I am not worried–because if there are cats who can do Nia— there’s hope.
And–I can always do these eye exercises.
