For Your Eyes Only

There on your table of solid oak is that pile of books you've been meaning to read. It was a grand plan, to read twenty-four books in one year. You gallantly tackled this tower of paperbacks on the first day of the new year, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner and there it is. You eye each title carefully, you squint to bring them into focus and you wonder why you only managed to finish half the books. Oh sure, you bit quite a chunk into this stack of books though finishing this pile would have been no problem with younger eyes.

You reach for your trusty yet cheap eyeglasses and slowly peruse the list you have still to read. You marvel how clear the world is through your stylish glasses. They're prescription, of course, but nobody has to know that. They settle comfortably on your nose as you pick up a book. The fireplace sings in the living room. A cup of hot chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream waits on the counter. You tap the durable frames of your glasses as you turn the first page. Amazing really, the fine print of the credit pages jump out. You kick up your heals and lose yourself in the written word. No strain on the eyes, no blurry words to squint at. Zenni Optical for deserving eyes. Nice!
