Eyesight Aftermath

I discovered that those childhood freckles I thought had faded through the years are still there. Pass me the lemon juice--or is that a remedy long out-of-date?

I also discovered that I had missed a swathe down the outside of my left leg while shaving blind. My only consolation is that no one looks at my legs anymore.

And I discovered that those twenty-year old electric rollers I am still using were nasty filthy. An old toothbrush and 409 remedied that, but now I'm worried that when I plug them in again, I'll either electrocute myself or burn the house down.

"Now, how about the other eye?" my ophthalmologist said. But I don't know if I'm ready for a second set of revelations quite yet.
