I Am Officially Old

I just got back from the optometrist with my first pair of bifocals.  (Thanks, Ben!)  Progressives, actually, and I guess these things take some getting used to, don't they?  I stopped in at the market on my way home, and when I moved my head around while looking down an aisle I felt like I was watching a bad student film project from the 60s.  Weird.  But I suppose my neurons will eventually adjust and trick me into thinking that everything is OK.  Or will they?  I actually don't wear my glasses very much, so it might take a while for my brain to figure out the new order of things.  We'll see.  In the meantime, hopefully I'll be able to watch TV and do a crossword puzzle at the same time once again.
