^ I remember that. I didn't know anyone ever really did that (other than my cousin wanting glasses but that only lasted for a day ;D) but now I know it does happen. ;D Greer, have you tried reading glasses with your contacts? That's the only thing my mom finds works for her as she can't read with her contacts anymore and can barely see with her glasses. ;D
^ I just came on to say I just realized I did to you the thing I hate more than anything - unsolicited advice. Sorry. ;D It's a bad habit I'm trying to get over. ;D I can imagine that wearing glasses or contacts of any kind is a huge pain and consider myself blessed that I do have good eyes. I think that's why I felt for Karen even more in this one (and because my mom is always saying how she can totally relate to Karen's feelings in it. I think this would be her favorite LS book if she read them. ;D)

It's not surprising that Karen would need glasses--it tends to run in families. I take it from the LS illustrations that Lisa wears glasses and Watson is pictured with glasses in a lot of books.
It's funny how a lot of us want glasses when we're younger. ;D I wouldn't say I ever faked failing an eye exam, but I definitely exaggerated my vision problems. Now that I actually need glasses, I don't want them.
The bracelet did not seem expensive to me, but what do I know about good jewelry? We called the article "Charlie's Five Dollar Bracelet".--Karen's Newspaper
^ me too. I want 20/20 vision again. I would love to just wake up in the morning and not have to deal with contacts or glasses. Or just fall asleep and not have to worry about my contacts sticking to my eyes and ripping.
I like my glasses, but I hate needing to grab them if I'm, say, going to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and I miss being able to fall asleep reading in bed. So I wouldn't mind if my eyesight was bad, I just don't want it to be this terrible! ;D
