Glad you all enjoyed the humor. Right after that post, I finally got fed up with the weird floater and went to an eye doctor. (What a tall, young, drink of water! Even my wife said so.) He did an exam and wanted me to see a retinal specialist. His admin called and the specialist scheduled an appointment for first thing yesterday.
Evidently, a retina can detach quite quickly and cause permanent blindness. So, another thorough exam was done. (Not tall, not especially young, but a drink of water nonetheless!) The retina hadn't detached, but there was a tear in it... When I asked when we should schedule to come back, he said, "No, no. We're doing it right now! I just need to warm up the laser."
One word describes the laser procedure: OUCH. I told my wife I wanted to "mother-fuck" him, but thought it wouldn't be very nice, so I grabbed hold of the edge of the gurney and squeezed. Hard. Had the wife been holding my hand I probably would've broken hers.
Anyway, that explains my absence yesterday. I hope you all understood. I hope you all enjoyed the first day of Autumn...
go grab a bit of sunshine while you can
and enjoy it
