Was that whole paragraph just one long sentence? Mighta been.
At any rate, talking with the eyeglass guy about when my glasses would be ready made me realize something: on January 3rd, I'll have been at The Co-op for one full year. Wow. Now maybe this doesn't sound like much, but considering the fact that my longest job (at Facets, in Chicago) lasted for exactly two years, and also considering the fact that I've seen more than twenty people come and go in the time that I've been at The Co-op (hello, momacress ...), well, I'm pretty pleased with myself. And celebrating with a new pair of glasses paid for (in part) by my beautiful new vision insurance sounds like a pretty good way to go.
Oh, and my new eyeglasses? They do tricks. No, seriously.
