Today in Crazy News!
1. Boy in Balloon Actually in Attic! – After snooping around online about this particular family, I kind of feel for them… especially the dad, who is a quixotic nut of my own variety. In other words, perfect fodder for those who think the whole thing was a publicity stunt. My verdict? Sometimes a total dork is just a total dork.
2. The Dow is Back Over 10,000 Again! – Yes, I know it can still come crashing down in a big heap, but do I still get credit for my email to Tessa on March 7 saying I “felt bullish” and it was time to buy buy buy?
Or did my momma not pay enough attention to me?
3. LASIK might have screwed you up! Now, this one I absolutely must take issue with. I know lots of people with LASIK, and while my observations are purely anecdotal and unscientific, they all love it. As for me, it might be the best thing I did in the entire 1990s (a pretty low bar, but still…)
Yes, I had dry eyes for some time, and occasionally I still need to buy Refresh™ Tears Brand Eye Drops. And there are halos around some lights at night, especially while driving. But those have largely abated, and you know what I’m left with? 20/15 vision for the last decade, after a lifetime of looking for my glasses and loathing contact lenses to the migraine point. I can read aspirin instructions held by people in their rooms next door.
If you’re thinking of LASIK, sure, do the research, but MAN has it been awesome.
That’s my dispatch on today’s events, and yours?
