Night blindness


I am pretty sure I have developed night blindness.
I'm really only halfway kidding.
This is a serious condition.
At first I thought it was rain blindness, and I told David many times,
that I couldn't see a thing while I was driving in the rain.
After doing more research though, I have settled on night blindness.
Tonight while I was driving home I could not see a thing.
I checked to make sure my headlights were on like 3 times.

I have never had great vision.
But not so not great that I've consistently worn glasses or contacts.
I did wear a patch for a while in the 3rd grade to correct my lazy eye.
That is not me. I was much bigger in the 3rd grade.
I don't think I have any pictures of me and my eye patch.
I'm pretty sure my parents made sure not  to take my picture with it on
in hopes that I would forget that it ever happened.
It was one of the two childhood tragedies I survived.
The other was wearing braces for  9 years.

I'm really sharing this as a public service annoucment.
I never claimed to be a good driver. Even during the day.
I dont even like driving. I would even go so far as to saying I dislike it. Ahem...Erin.
So maybe it's time to dig out the ole glasses.
Or maybe its time to take spray some windex on Black Beauty.

Oh yes. I do recall squiring you about town because of your dislike of driving. I didn't hate it though!
