A blind "weekly bus trip" #4

From the series "weekly bus trip" here is the latest one. Last week, I had to go to do a check-up for my eyes. Since I'm a quasi-blind with -7 degrees in each eye, it's recommended. I was in Beirut and the appointment was in Tripoli. The other reason for the check-up is that all my glasses are broken and the contact lenses are tiring-up my eyes so I had to buy new glasses. Bad news. According to the ophthalmologist, I can't put on my contact lenses 12 hours before the check-up. So 2 choices: Do a blind trip or wear my single handed glasses. I opted for the second one. Then, in the bus, where by the way, I was lucky because the seat next to me had been empty during the entire trip, I met 2 girls, one of them was gorgeous. I think she was gorgeous, but since I wasn't wearing my half glasses. U can call them monocles too. And u know it's hard to impress someone while wearing monocles. But at least, one thing was sure, they were girls. Yeah, don't worry. I still can discern gender. Those of you who don't have myopia is hard for them to imagine how tough is our life without glasses, especially on the beach where I usually am the only one who misses all the "panorama".

Dommage, la prochaine fois, il faut avoir une paire de secours :D
Moi je sais très bien ce que tu ressens, je suis presque aussi myope que toi, mais heureusement qu’il y a les lentilles de contacts, en fait, tu peux les mettre à la plage, tu peux te baigner avec mais évites d’ouvrir les yeux sous l’eau.

J’ai dû une fois rentrer de Tunisie, avec une escale à Tunis avec des lunettes cassées ayant survécu à un incendie. Je ne te raconte pas l’état des lunettes. C’était tôt le matin, impossible d’acheter des lentilles, je ne me suis jamais sentie aussi mal, je ne voyais pas les indications, je suivais les autres passagers. Je ne sais plus comment je suis arrivée à Paris. La galère totale. :D

dado et giovani c'est bien on est dans la meme galère. donc vous savez bien la souffrance des myopes. Moi j'ai eu mes premières lunettes à l'age de 4 ans. I had a nerdy look in almost all the school period.
Dado, concernant les lentilles de contact, j'évite toujours de les meetre à la plage car je les perds souvent sous l'eau

sarcastic to the bone. I know they seem ok. I bought new ones and feel very comfortable wearing them. I'm not nagging! i was nagging abt the old ones.
