On Thursday night, while watching the BYU baseball game I arrived at a devastating conclusion. I never thought the day would come. Up until this day, I have lived my life in clouded distortion, believing that I had 20/20 vision. I was asking my friend, Jacob, about his glasses (which he says have a light prescription), and having always desired eye glasses to enhance my sophistication, I asked if I could try them on...
But I was not prepared for what I was about to behold. "sonuva!!!....." It was like looking an a crappy ol' TV set, and then switching to an HDTV plasma screen. No joke. The whole world opened up before my eyes. I could read the numbers on the score board, the names on the jerseys-- everything. The world was so clear and beautiful, and I had no idea. I almost shed a tear.
Here's for a visual:

I couldn't even see the lake in the first one!!
So ladies and gents, I think that I need glasses. I can't believe I have gone this long without them. I shudder to think of all the eye examinations that I passed with flying colors. I must've just been a good guesser. ha. Well, it is bittersweet, but I think my dream of a sophisticated pair of specs has finally come true.
Here I am in Jacob's miracle glasses. Jake and Adam told me that I do not look good in them, but I think I appear to be engaging in the intellect.
