Well, yesterday, for the first time ever in my life, someone called me up to tell me that my order was ready earlier than scheduled and that i could go pick it up whenever i wanted to.
I couldn’t believe it. How come ? I mean, things like that never happen. It’s normal for delays to happen, but for something to be ready before schedule, that’s impossible.
Anyway, it was true.
And i’ve already filed this occurrence for consideration in the Guinness book of records.
Well, what was ready ?
My new pair of eyeglasses.
So, i went and picked them up after work, and spent all night trying to get used to them. I still think i look a bit weird in them.
But, this morning as i walked in at work and said hi to everyone and chatted with some people a bit, almost nobody noticed, so that’s cool. I’d rather they don’t notice than having them burst into laughter 😛
Anyway, as for myself, my eyes are still adapting to the new glasses and all, but one thing that crosses my mind is this Jimmy Cliff song that goes something like this:
I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshinin’ day
Oh well, not that i didn’t see well with the old ones, but the vision is clearer with these.
