I had an appointment with my friendly neighborhood optometrist today. Except that the friendly neighborhood happens to be 16 miles away.
Well, being diabetic, I have to have my pupils dilated every time I go and today was no different. It was recommended that I get trifocals. It's a drag getting old.
It was partly sunny here in Ohio today, and I forgot my sunglasses. Being the fool I am, I hopped into the WIXYmobile and headed west. There were times that the sun was so bright and I started getting sick to my stomach. I headed towards Wadsworth to get some items at the Evil Big Box Store.
As I was going to the the store, I was listening to our resident loudmouth afternoon radio lack-of-personality, Mike Trivisonno. I do have to give Triv credit for my record day, as far as hits go. This was when I called his show and he cut me off and was rude to me. But that was then and this is now and he's still a buffoon. Back to my story. One thing I heard Triv say was that the democrats fixed the New Hampshire primary.
Triv then had a caller who said that anyone who said that he was part of Cleveland's problems were insane. This caller identified herself as Alicia Battle. For those of you who were unaware, Alicia Battle was a person who claimed that she bought a winning Mega Millions ticket, but lost it in the parking lot of the convenience store. She then tried suing the lady who did buy the 162 million dollar winner. Yeah, that's the type of person I'd want sticking up for me.
Anyway, it was still bright, so into the Evil Big Box Store I go. I was walking around trying to kill some time until the sun starts to set. I also needed some ink cartridges for my printer. So I go back to the electronics department and take a look at the selection. The rational thing to do is buy both cartridges packaged together, right? Wrong. The B&W cartridge was 18.17 and the color cartridge was 33.27. The combo package was 53.27. You do the math.
I think a lot when my vision's impaired.
