Musings From A Musical Mind

Eye Candy

Well it’s finally come to this.  Our bodies are starting to betray us.  At our age – it is nice to be able to still laugh about things not working as quickly or as well as they used to.  But our eyes – please NOT our eyes.  Our vision has been reduced to objects that are too blurry close up – so we must back them away – and objects in the distance that are too blurry because we don’t have our glasses on.    I wear glasses to drive and watch TV only – no contacts for me – at least I have resisted them thus far.  But it used to be that I could still read even with my glasses on for distance.  Not so anymore.  If I am watching TV and need to change the channel on the remote or play scrabble on my iPhone – I have to put my glasses on the tip of my nose (like an old person) and look above them to see close up.  In the car if I’m wearing my prescription sun glasses – it’s the same thing if I’m emailing or texting someone on my iPhone.  It’s very annoying and  I just know the eye doctor is going to tell me that I need bifocals next!  Do I really need bifocals to kiss my husband?  I mean to really see him?  He’s so blurry up close now.  Greg has the same problem – except worse and I’m sure I am ALWAYS blurry to him up close.  He can’t even see close up without his contacts – and forget about seeing distance!  He’s blind as a bat!  So either way – he’s doomed to get bifocals too. Don’t bifocals mean you’re officially old?  I don’t feel old.

It’s pretty funny asking him to do anything up close while he still has his contacts in – he simply can’t see anything.  No remote buttons – no iPhone email or text – it’s all a blur.  So many times I have laughed at him trying to adjust something or seen him on “all fours” trying hard to grab the right button on the DVR or surround sound system – only to have him muttering under his breath that he CAN’T read anything!!!!

But all is not lost – and he still has his wonderful teasing sense of humor – which if ever lost – would be a tragedy.  I was riding home with him from theater class today and I looked over at him and smiled – saying, “You look really nice today” and he replied, “Just think of me as “Eye Candy”  And that made me laugh right out loud!

Wouldn’t you love to think of yourself as someone’s “eye candy” today?  It’s nice to know that I don’t have to look very far to find one in my home – even if he IS a bit blurry now – close up, that is 😉  And if I ever forget that he is – he is right there reminding me!

Have an awesome evening!

God Bless

  1. That’s funny! If wearing bi-focals defines “old”, then I’ve been old for awhile. Kelly had to get bifocals this last year. We’re old. I’ve worn glasses since fourth grade and have always been blind as a bat without them. I loved wearing contacts, but as I’ve gotten older I find that my eyes don’t tolerate them as well anymore. Such sight challenges are really frustrating – like beard trimming (I grow a beard every winter) and ear and nose hair trimming (’bout skewer myself sometimes!). Aye, aye, aye…ain’t age a grand thing? Still, blurry vision is better than no vision, I guess.

    • “La la la” I can’t HEAR YOU!!!! I do NOT want bifocals!!! But seriously – I don’t FEEL old – so I guess we’re only as old as we feel – not as old as we can “see”, right? You have so much in common with Greg – he’s always been blind as a bat without contacts – and he has “unusual” hair growing from strange places and I need to help him “preen” – in the places he can’t see ☺
