Girls Who Wear Glasses

When I was little, I strained to have blurry vision because I wanted to wear glasses, specifically black horn-rimmed ones. I spent 10 minutes a day crossing my eyes on purpose, hoping that as a result the optometrist would tell my mom that I needed glasses, stat. Now that I do need them, and do wear them -- still for reading only, but I could (and should) use them regularly -- I strain to focus without them, spending ten minutes a day doing eye exercises in hope that I might stall an ensuing blindness.
