Fiorella went to EyeMart yesterday morning and ordered two more pairs of glasses. Yes, she admits she bought two pairs just six months ago, but she lost them, the most recent pair in New York.
Losing glasses has been a problem for Fio ever since she got her first pair when she was in the sixth grade. And she knows why: most people wear their glasses full-time, but the ever-vain Fiorella will put them on only when desperately needed.
"Get one of those librarian things that latches onto the frames and hangs the glasses around your neck," you counsel Fio. She tried that, and the handle of the glasses broke off and she lost the whole kit and caboodle. "Put them down in the same place every time," you suggest. And Fio tries to, but she moves around so much. And, to complicate things, because she has permanent lenses for close-up work, she rarely wears glasses inside the house except to watch TV.
Pray for her and to her--Fiorella, the patron saint of the eyeglass industry.
