I had just gotten into the car with my children, when I put on my new sunglasses. I started to say how wonderful it was to be able to see clearly through new lenses. In fact, I went on and on about the difference a “slight” adjustment to a prescription makes.
Well, we were driving to a dental appointment, when I noticed two swans on somebody’s front lawn. Instantly my head went back to when we used to feed the ducks at a college pond, and how it would be great to have had bread in the car…. to get out and feed these two, beautiful swans. Anyhow, I was so excited, that I drove a little slower to show the children.
Me: Oh look! Did you see that?!
Me: The two swans!
Kid: Really? You thought those were real?
Kid 2: What did she think was real?
Kid: (laughing) She actually thought those metal things were actually swans.
Kid 2: Yeah, it must be good to see so clear.
