Well, I just had the very best time yesterday.
Nevermind that it was rainy and cold and just generally yucky.
No, neveryoumind any of that.
After years and years of trying to deal with my waning vision issues by just wearing "readers" from Walmart (or sometimes from the generous 4-packs at Sam's) I picked up my special MADE JUST FOR ME spectacles yesterday.
And you will never guess what!
MAWMAW CAN SEE Y'ALL!
And I tell you it is nothing short of a DELIGHT.
The vegetables at the HEB were amazing. Some of the BIGGEST tomatoes I have ever been privileged to witness. And the seafood section, well, it just blew me away. Shrimp. They have eyes! and long whiskers!
And you know when you are seeing such beauty for the first time, you want to touch it of course, which garnered a few questionable looks from people when I was in the Pork and Poultry section, but rest assured that them hurriedly shuffling their children away from me did not bother me in the least.
I was HAVING A TIME!
I believe what I most enjoyed were the EDGES. Did y'all know that all things (well, mostly all, I suppose) have EDGES? I'm talking CLEARLY DEFINED places where things begin and end. It is nothing short of a wonder of God's design.
It was all I could do not to just continually CLAP MY HANDS WITH JOY.
Hallelujah and Amen.
And The Chief! Have you seen him? He's so TALL!
And he has the most attractive gray hairs in his goatee! Yes ma'am and sir he does!
And The Weege? Well, I tell you right now the little Weegster's legs are only about 3 or 4 inches long!
And did you know that salt is actually NOT invisible? You can SEE IT, I tell you. And pepper too. And they just sit there on top of your food until you tell them to just jump right in with the rest!
Overall I had almost TOO MUCH FUN with all the SEEING!
The only downside was when I looked into the bathroom mirror.
But on the other hand, I was THRILLED! to discover that I could SEE! to look up the phone numbers for the WAXING SALON! and the GIRL THAT DOES MY HIGHLIGHTS!
Because I need to CALL! THEM! IMMEDIATELY!
(And I know that in my excitement I have overused the CAPS! and the EXCLAMATIONS!, but it is from my heart I tell you)
Anyway, this is kind of what I look like now - in case you see me out in this GREAT BIG BEAUTIFUL WORLD.
Honestly though, I'll probably just kind of hunker down for a while until after those aforementioned appointments.
If you know what I mean.
But it will be such a THRILL! to SEE! some of you SOON!
I highly recommend the vision enhancement.
Thank you Dr. Matthew McCauley.
Now everyone please go enjoy your day.
