CHILDHOOD MEMORY- THE DAY PRETTYKAY LOST HER EYES!
I must have been six or seven. I don't remember exactly which class I was in but it was either class one or two. I was at that age where I had to get everything I told my mum I wanted or I'd cry- wait, cry is an understatement, I'D SCREAM MY LUNGS OUT!! Anyway, like I was saying, I came from school one day and decided spectacles were the coolest thing man ever made. You know those huge, thick specs with the rope (for lack of a better word) round it. I told my mum i wanted to wear one and she said no. Even if I cried her a river, i knew the answer was still a big fat ugly NO!! So as smart as I was, a couple of days later as my mum was bathing for me, she told me to take the soap out of the soap dish for her. I pretended I had suddenly gone blind. I remember my mum holding a mirror to my face and asking me to tell her if I saw anything. I must have been a great actress cos I remember my mum crying and saying I had gone blind. Next day, I skipped school and went to see the eye doctor. Well, i didn't get my thick glasses. All i got was eye drops. Looking back, I can't even imagine what my mum went through all because I wanted some specs I know I'd have hated if I got them to begin with. The things we put our parents through in our ignorance. I wonder how I'd feel if my daughter puts me through so much anguish for something as stupid as ugly spectacles. Her Prettyness
