Oh how nice Beecharmer. A delightful little conceit ......I thoroughly enjoyed it

Brilliant! And now we know why Margot was such a problem!. Love that Nell just accepts her need for glasses but Hilda doesn't and Kathie and Nancy are just priceless!
Author's Response: Thank you :-D I see this quite often - children or adults with that type of eyes, so often just "Don't like reading", but no wonder, they are working twice as head as others, at an age where things like that are first learned. :-D

I love this - a beautifully written and insightful vignette. They say that you should write what you know, and your expertise makes this really vivid and interesting. I love Hilda refusing to wear glasses and Rosalie hoping they will help but in reality her problems are caused by overwork and poor posture - that's so true to life.
Author's Response: Thank you - it's so true, I see people who just desperately want me to give them glasses "For the computer" or are sure the computer has ruined their eyes, but you can see how hunched their shoulders are and how tense their neck is - but they just won't have it !

I like the differences you show between all the different people and their differing needs an reasons. Love Miss Wilson not caring about needing glasses & just getting on with it whilst Miss Annersley was still resistant to the idea. Also had to chuckle at the clock he got for saving everyone from being mown down by Kathie when she was driving.
Thanks Kathryn :-D
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it. I could just see them reacting that way :-D

What a fascinating drabble! I do like it when the expertise of MLers shines a different light on events and attitudes. Thanks, Beecharmer!
Author's Response: Thank you - but what is a MLer? I immediately thought of Mary Lou ! Modern Lifer's ? Medical Loser's ? No clue ! Thank you for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Some interesting ideas! It all sounds very plausible, love the idea of Kathy getting driving glasses and the townsfolk's reaction!
Author's Response: Thank you :-D I'm surprised how many people liked this ! I see so many people who think their driving vision is excellent, poor Kathy got the short straw !
