Don’t text and dilate

Recently I had my eyes checked. Let’s face it… age is catching up to me and things just aren’t as clear as they used to be. Despite the lessons from 2020 and gaining clarity around so many things in life~ my eyesight wasn’t on that list. Of course, I couldn’t drive after they dilated my […]

Recently I had my eyes checked. Let’s face it… age is catching up to me and things just aren’t as clear as they used to be. Despite the lessons from 2020 and gaining clarity around so many things in life~ my eyesight wasn’t on that list.

Of course, I couldn’t drive after they dilated my eyes, so I put a podcast on and sat in my car listening and relaxing until my vision was legally clear and safe enough to operate a vehicle.

A text from my daughter popped up on my phone and while I couldn’t exactly read it I could see that she’d sent a picture of what looked to be a piece of paper (a homework assignment?) with something about help below it. Knowing the keyboard by heart on my phone I shot a note back to her that read something like this:

“I just had my eyes dilated and can’t see anything so I’m just hanging out in my car for a while.”

While typing the little auto-correct bubble popped up & I let it do it’s thing, because to be honest my fingers frequently have a mind of their own and work much faster than my brain.

But when she typed back, “hahaha! WHAT?”, I paused and thought, hmmm… that must not have come out right.

So I retyped it but cancelled the auto correct button this time.

Meanwhile, my daughter shared it with a few close friends (who now probably think I’m crazy). When I was able to see more clearly, I looked back at my message and this is what I saw:

“I just had my eyes donated and can’t see anything so I’m just hanging out in my car for a while”

Note to self… don’t text while your eyes are dilated!
