He was so good he got a sticker.

July 3, 2013


Lloyd and I went to the eye doctor today. It was my 107th visit, but Lloyd’s first. It was an honor to be there as he had all the weird tests done, and I deeply regret that I was too timid to take a photo of him in the exam room. Moment lost.

The cool thing about Lloyd being there was that he asked all kinds of questions, so we learned what all those machines check. I don’t remember now, of course, but I blame my blonde retinas. When we looked at the photos of our retinas, mine are ‘blonde’, which is why I’m light-sensitive. Sooooo many jokes available.


Anyway, having two of us there, and with all Lloyd’s questions, we were there for-eh-ver, then it was time to pick out frames. I picked the first ones I saw, but Lloyd took a little more time. He’ll be getting bifocals (slight nearsighted correction and also farsighted correction) so this was a little more of a big deal than just grabbing a pair from Walmart’s reading glasses display. It was between the ones in the banner and the ones he’s wearing here.

Which ones do you think he chose?

    I’m guessing the ones in the banner.


  2. Brad Said on:

    Since Kris said the banner, I’ll say the ones in the lower picture. That way both answers are covered.


  3. Kristi Said on:

    Since you said which “ONES”, does that mean he chose both?

    Both look good, but I hope he chose the bottom pair.

    (Can you tell I’m not sure how to answer?)

      I actually thought about that each time I typed it. I say ‘ones’ all the time, but can’t think of the reason for it. I kept it in to stir up controversy. 😉

    Bottom pair, look at the way all of those people behind him are looking at him!


  5. Peggy Said on:

    Hmmm….My 1st instinct was to say the banner pair. They look more teacherisk. But I’ll say the bottom pair.

    Btw: Nice shirt! Is that from Hawaii?

    Btw2: There are soooo many things wrong with me….but my eyes are still good.

    Dad got glasses and you got glasses. You were both fortunate not to have to get them sooner! You will look fine in either.


  8. Kris Said on:

    So…. which ones did he pick?
