eye test

Ack, trying to catch up on work. Was hindered by an eye check-up in the morning...the drops used in one of the tests made it impossible for me to read anything for several hours, including a computer screen (AUGH!). Had my eyes poked, prodded, checked, was grateful that my prescription hadn't changed (my eyes are bad enough as it is :-)). Although I'm not particularly enamoured of eye tests, I'd go for an eye appointment over a dental appointment anytime. Besides, the checkups happen infrequently enough that I'm still fascinated by the whole process. Even by the cliched eye you think they ever change the letters? As a child, I always toyed with the idea of memorizing the whole chart for a lark. This time, I was also asked to read the first paragraph of a very dull story in small type. I tried to compensate for the dullness by putting extra excitement into my reading; I don't think the optometrist appreciated my efforts, though.

Okay, enough blathering, plunging back into trying to catch up after my holiday...
