Weekend Assignment #270: You've been given the magical opportunity to change just one thing about yourself, instantly and painlessly. There is no going back; whatever change you make is permanent, aside from normal aging. What would you change - or would you choose to stand pat? (Please note that this is a change to yourself, not the world around you. Also, I'm disallowing weight loss, because it's just too obvious.)
I thought about this for a little while. I came up with two that Karen also came up with, so I'll go with a different one than she did. I'd get rid of the need for glasses. I'm tired of them. They get bent out of shape after a while and become uncomfortable. You can't wear sunglasses with them, at least the kind I would like to wear. Sure, there are prescription sunglasses, and I have them, but it's a pain to change them all the time. And, no, I don't like the ones that get dark when you go outside; they never seem like they get light enough inside.
I also have a big problem picking out frames. I can spend hours in there trying to decide which make me look the least dorky. Or, on the other hand, the ones that don't make me look like I think I'm too cool for anyone around me. You know the type I'm talking about.
I've worn contacts in the past, but I can't anymore. For some reason my eyes get extremely dry at work, and since I spend a lot of time there, why get them and suffer? I should also mention I'm terrified of LASIK surgery. Yes, I know the odds are low that I would have a problem, but they aren't zero!
Extra Credit: If you could change two things, what would the second thing be?
For the extra credit, I'd go with allergies like Karen. They suck. And this year has been suckier than normal. (Yes, that is a word. In my dictionary.)
