New look

I had dinner earlier this week with a former-student-turned-friend. As soon as she saw me, she said, "Now you look just like you did when you taught us." That was more than 10 years ago. What she meant is: I'm wearing glasses again, not contacts, and my hair is super long again, after various flirtations with short hairstyles.

I was going to make new glasses anyway, but last week at the optician's, the woman who examined my eyes said my corneas aren't getting enough oxygen and maybe I'd want to stop wearing contact lenses for a while. She also said something about how at a certain age, our cells don't regenerate as quickly as before.


So I'm going to wear glasses for a while. My mother says I look scholarly. I miss the peripheral vision that comes with wearing contact lenses, but I'd rather keep those corneas healthy.
