Blinded by the light

The other day I went to my eye doctor to get my glasses fixed (the little nose cushion thing broke).  While I was there they told me that it was time for my annual exam so did I want it.  Ok that’s fine.  So my exam is going well up until the eye drops part.  I HATE eye drops.  I can’t stand anything in my eye.  All the sudden my eye doctor said “Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry I just dilated you!”  WHAT?!?  I was like “I live 40 minutes away!!!”  So I went out to the lobby area to wait for the dilation to happen so she could finish the exam.  I typed a couple of unreadable texts then finished my exam.  Then it was time to go.  Let me remind you that I live in Charlotte, NC and it is as bright here as, I don’t know, THE CENTER OF THE SUN.  I asked for glasses.  This is what they gave me:   A roll up sun shade that goes behind your glasses.  THANK THE GOOD LORD I’M NOT SINGLE, cause hooooboy, I would NOT have done well that day with the fellas.  Here’s another view.  Take in the sexiness.   Luckily my sister lives near my eye doctor so I dropped by her house to let the sun go down.  On  the way there though I realized these roll up sun shades just weren’t cutting it as far as keeping the blinding sun out of my eyes so I added some sunglasses to the mix.    That’s 3 levels of optical beauty right there people.  Don’t hate.

I went to the dentist and eye doctor today.  Everything went well at the dentist – I’m getting a retainer (!) and I helped the front desk lady with her couponing.  Then at the eye doctor for my annual exam my doctor accidentally dilated me!  I was 45 minutes from home and blind!  Luckily my sister Sara lives up that way so I hung out at her house for a few minutes to get my eye holes a little back to normal before hitting the highway.  Check out the roll up “sun glasses” they gave me:  They were no match for the Carolina sun though so I had to add my own sunglasses over the whole deal just to see to drive.    So pretty!
