This time I’ll tell you the story of why how I got glasses. I remember I was at my elder cousin sister’s place, just looking around here and there. In the background, my mom and my cousin were talking about the new pair of glasses she just got. I remember running back and asking her if I can try them on. She asked me not to as it is not great. Back then I did not have glasses and I wanted to be a girl with specs. I STILL DON’T KNOW WHY! I always thought they looked pretty cool. Now, I know that only some chics manage to carry them off very well. And I was am definitely not one of them.
Anyways, as I tried on her glasses, I kept looking at the walls and stuff, perhaps even at the wall clock and surprisingly I could see everything a bit clearly. A bit might be lying! I could actually see things clearly. Right there, it was a weird indication that I needed glasses too :s But somehow didn’t mention anything to my mother.
After that, I had this test in class and I ended up getting the lowest marks in the entire batch. When my teacher showed me my paper, she pointed out that I had copied the questions wrong!
By that time, my parents were convinced that something’s wrong with my eye. No, wait, that was the only time they were convinced 😐
Finally, went to the doc — suggested that I should have gone to him earlier because I’m late and my power has increased.
So this argument started on whether I should try on lenses or glasses. Then my dad and the doc got into a big stupid fight about how lenses are all about marketing and stuff. In the end, I had to get those damn glasses.
In college, I tried getting lenses by performing really well in one sem (yes, that was the condition!). So I did! But by that time I lost the interest in trying them on because it felt very regular. Everyone was using it. So I switched back to glasses.
So you see this lens-glass-lens-glass cycle is kinda irritating. And now my friends tell me that I look better without glasses. Ofcourse, I know I look better without them. It’s not like I chose to look stupid. It’s a need or else I may end up tripping on the stairs and stuff. Yeah, my eyes do get that blurry 🙁
But now I’ve decided that I’ll get lenses only when I earn so that my parents don’t get to crib about it too. BTW, my friends did suggest me the laser-eye operation thingie and it scared the creep outta me. So yeah, I’m sticking to lenses (for the future). Glasses ( for now ) 😐
You’ll prolly get to see the before and after shot after I get the lenses. 😛
