It was touch and go, but I actually remembered my eye appointment today. Two weeks ago, I was doopty-dooing aimlessly around the house only to realize it was 3 o’clock, and at 2’clock I should have been at the doctor’s, having someone puffing air into my eye sockets. I called and apologized profusely, but the office lady seemed fine with my spaciness and calmly scheduled me for today. I felt terrible. I’m one of those people who is there when I say I’m going to be there.
As I’ve written before, I’m still pretty new to this whole eye doctor thing. Years and years of 20/20 meant that it had never occurred to me to go to an optometrist.
Everywhere the routine is a tad different, whether it’s the vet or the dentist.
Here I answered all their questions from the car, was admitted past the locked door and had the temp check, then was sent to a corner to wash my hands (feeling a little like a 5 year-old who’d come in from making mud pies) , and finally made it into the rooms of machines.
This office changed hands about three years ago and I like this new guy, who has kind of cool-guy vibes and has been spotted here in town on a Harley. He’s young enough that he’ll be around for quite a while, and according to My Guy, who has all kinds of eye things going on, the doc knows his stuff.
My eyes haven’t done anything interesting since I was there last, so that’s good. But even though I was all dilated up, my eyes were drawn down to my physician’s feet.
Not only did he have on penguin socks, but his footwear was epic. This picture is only an example, but when have you last seen alligator shoes on anyone?
(And the eye game must pay off, since these from on-line were $750.)
Oh my. Those ARE impressive shoes. Not Harley riding shoes, but totally impressive.ReplyDelete
Hmmm. Good point. I wonder if he has alligator boots.Delete
hmmm looks like eye guy chose the right profe$$ion.ReplyDelete
I wonder if I've ever seen alligator anything, except when I was selling Nina's stuff on EBay.ReplyDelete
He has a Harley? I like him already.ReplyDelete
Supposedly, I have an appointment coming up in either October or November. I will cancel if they require me to mask.ReplyDelete
Curious why you would object to wearing the mask. . . .Delete
He sounds like a great guy. And if I had missed an appointment like that, I'd have had to pay anyway. Those are some shoes! :-)ReplyDelete
I need to go to the optician for some new glasses and I've been putting it off...
