Today is a momentous day. This very well could be the last day I wear contacts. EVER. I am strangely freaked out by this. The reason for bidding contacts farewell is that I am getting lasik soon, but that's not what's freaking me out. Cutting a flap on my eye with lasers and what have you... no biggie. I'm not freaked by the prospect of surgery, but of being without contacts. I have worn them since the 8th grade, so more than half of my life. I got glasses 22 years ago. What will this be like??? I think I will feel naked at first, kind of like when you forget to put on a watch or wedding ring that you always wear.
But I am really excited! I'm so glad the timing is finally right for this!
PS - Just a little tip. Do not stock up on contact solution at Costco when they have a coupon if there is a chance that out of the blue a couple months later your husband will suggest that you spring for lasik. There is a remote chance that your frugality logic is so messed up that you will be apprehensive about permanently fixing your myopia and leading a life of carefree joy and unencumbered good vision just so you can use up the rest of the contact solution supply you bought. (Issues? What issues?)
PPS - Anyone interested in buying some contact solution at deep discount? New and unopened!
