Today I went back to the eye doctor so that he could check out my vision with my new hard contact lenses. I haven’t been wearing them a lot because it is difficult to make the adjustment from soft contacts to hard ones. I’ve been spending at least half of my time wearing my old ones (I’m on my sixth week in this particular pair of two-week lenses) including this morning.
Gabe had to come home from work early so that he could stay home with the kids when I went to the eye doctor. So at about 4:00 I put in my new contacts while fending off The Goon Squad.
When the doctor was checking my eyes he mentioned that he saw two pairs of lenses in there.
That’s right. You heard me. I put my hard contacts in my eyes right on top of my old lenses like a moron. I have no idea how I could even drive to the doctor’s office. Apparently I am not the only person who has done this because my doctor said they called that “piggybacking”. Then he probably went into the back office and laughed his ass off. I seriously thought he was joking at first, but nope. I’m a total doofus.
(editors note: This has absolutely no tie in to The Post Where I Admit I am an Idiot Part 1 except for the fact that I am once again admitting I’m an ignoramus. By the way, I have gotten that Bloglines thing all worked out.)
