I woke up early this morning because the dog I’m dog-sitting was whining like a crazy person. As much as I enjoy sleeping, I also enjoy a pee-free carpet, so I got up. But then, I forgot how to glasses. o______oV
So, this hasn’t happened in a while, but, I went to bed late last night due to doggie’s whining in the evening so when I finally did start to fall asleep I didn’t pay enough attention as to where I was placing them.
And now here I am, pulling a Velma, trying to find my glasses so this dog doesn’t pee on my carpet. Meanwhile, dog doesn’t understand my feels, he just knows his bladder is on the brink of exploding and I’m wasting his precious time as I stumble around touching all available surface areas.
I really hate being so blind.
You know that situation where people try on other people’s glasses? Yeah, whenever mine are examined, the response is always “omg i’m going to be sick, you really are blind.” Thanks? Thanks for believing in the truth I speak when I say I really can’t see shit!
I think my reliance on glasses is really holding me back from my vigilante crime fighting aspirations. Although asthma is a close second, I’m sure.
Situations I can foresee becoming an issue:
- Extremely humid crime-heavy ares: foggy glasses
- Extremely rainy crime-heavy areas: foggy glasses
- Heroic newspaper pictures: lens flare – I’ll look like a bad guy in an anime
- Battles with baddies: I’ll become broke investing in contacts to avoid the glasses-falling-off-my-face factor
If I were a part of a team, like the mystery team, then I could have moments like Velma with no problem cause people would have my back. But I couldn’t solo that shit. No one would take me seriously if I was like this erryday:
Not very intimidating, imo.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT MY COMPLAINTS, HERE’S A GUY WHO IS CHANGING SHIT!
Yash Gupta started the organization Sight Learning in 2011. Basically they go around to optometrists and collect glasses and then send them to children who need them! Sight Learning donated 9,500 glasses for kids in Haiti, Honduras, India and Mexico.
This guy is the super hero, obviously. The batman for all those blind-as-a-bats out there :3 myself included. He is out there spreading the awarness of how children world wide who have vision impairments have no resources to a decent pair of glasses!
If you are blind, like myself, and have been for many years – send in your old glasses! Seriously! I plan on donating my current pair of glasses when I get a new pair! :3
I love calling myself out as a douche bag when I complain about something and I am reminded of how privileged I am by having it. Gotta keep shit real. This is a great organization and mission. Gupta, you are a badass.
