Repositioning the Spectacles
Spectacles, or what others may call eyeglasses, are such interesting gadgets. At this point in time,the whole world may not care whether you and I know all of a spectacles’ parts and we may leave it at that as long as the parts are good and functioning.
It is indeed a wonder how they never seem to fit anyone perfectly. They have an odd way of misplacing themselves when we least expect it. Vanity comes into the picture when we reposition them. We subconsciously engage into a ritual that's only between us and our spectacles. We learn to love repositioning them because of the reassurance we get from the act itself. The spectacles’ parts secretly know how important they are to our everyday living that they have grown accustomed to being touched often so they fall on purpose each and every chance they get. The relationship becomes symbiotic. As if by camouflage, the pair of lenses blend with our face. As we thrive, we become a vital part of the other and vice versa.
Fortunately, we can set vanity aside for a while and focus on the more important matters involved when we reposition our glasses. Our lovely but less than capable eyes might really desire to have a better view of the world before us. In a reflex, our quick hands adjust them here and there until we reach a feeling of security. Nose pads are on the right parts of the nose, the bridge part rests on its rightful place and the field of view is justly covered by the lenses. We can then smile and say perfect.
We know better than to think of the last sentence above as a happy ending. The story does not end after that much needed smile. There will always be a new chapter in the adventure of our beloved, erring eyes. Let’s just wait until the windows of our soul shift their love and devotion onto some other well-off pair of eyeglasses with new lenses that can best compliment our eyesight. Responding to the need to see clearer, we buy the much awaited eyeglasses with no further delay.
The spectacles are brand new and they’re all set, ready to shine,to be touched, to be of help and especially ready to be repositioned. Here comes the sweet moment of truth. In the blink of an eye, our irises click with the fresh lenses as our new eyeglasses fall for our eyes. It's so good to be true. Undeniably a match made in heaven. As for our old chap, he will be lucky if he’ll be kept in a safe place where he’ll meet other stuff which had seen better days. After upgrading ourselves and adjusting to the better view, we can now give our very best smile and say perfect. (O-O)
