That said, I can NEVER live without my specs-a-lenses. And so, guys and girls, an idea hit me while I was reaching for my glasses in the morning (I guess it's true - the weirdest ideas come to you when you least expect them), and I had to do this!
Without specs-a-lenses, I can't see or differentiate textures. I can't see solid outlines or distinct shapes. Though, fortunately, I can still see the correct colours, everything blends in with one another - everything becomes a blur, everything becomes flat.
I'm sure those who rely on specs-a-lenses know what I mean. But for those who have been blessed with perfect vision, here's something to experience!
With specs-a-lenses: A bowl of milk and Coco Pops for breakfast.
Without specs-a-lenses: A bowl of brown stuff with white specks for breakfast.
With specs-a-lenses: Ham, egg and cheese sandwich for lunch.
Without specs-a-lenses: Something square with brown edges, and pink and yellow circular stuff for lunch.
With specs-a-lenses: A green 'pandan' sponge cake with cream layers for dessert.
Without specs-a-lenses: A green cake with one (or maybe two?) strips of yellow stuff for dessert. And wait, is that a layer of chocolate on top?
With specs-a-lenses: A cereal bar as a snack.
Without specs-a-lenses: Something rectangular with brown and white spots, in something really shiny as a snack. Yikes, there's a trail of ants on it - better throw it out.
Yup, it's that bad. Unless, of course, I look at it really, really, really, RIDICULOUSLY up close.
I hereby dedicate this blog post to each and every pair of specs-a-lenses I've worn and torn.
They have served me well.
