today i went to the eye doctor

...and learned that mine, egads, is the eyeball on the left. this eye doctor i saw was a young, pretty lady, perhaps the youngest and the prettiest doctor i have ever visited, and also the first doctor in my experience who forcibly removed the contacts from my very eyes. also, today's was the first eye chart i've read that had numbers in it, which i didn't even know was possible. 5? is that a 5?

i like the rituals of an eye doctor visit--the following of bright lights, the "better? or worse?" questions, the gentle click-clicking of the lenses turning over. and the best part is that it all culminates in this sudden, brilliant shift into clarity! which never fails to make me feel truly super. cheers to my eyeballs.
