I didn't think things were ever supposed to be quicker than expected. Only 11 days ago I called my optometrist for an appointment. I got in to see him four days ago. I came back the next day and ordered new reading glasses. Today I picked them up. Now I can read with both eyes. It's a whole new world (or at least half a new world).
I guess things balance out somewhere, sometime. My on-line fortune cookie today said "Bad luck and ill misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity." I don't see much wiggle room for interpretation on that one.
