Who are you calling 'four-eyes'?
Are we all sitting comfortably and wearing our glasses? Did you put yours on just before you came here, or were you already peering through them? Or are you half-and-half, looking over the top of them while they're perched further down your nose, like those of a stereotypical imperious head teacher? Perhaps you just need to put them on to read the tiny type on the Branston Pickle jar ('once open keep in the fridge and use within 6 weeks' - it's a pickle for fuck's sake! We used to keep jars of pickle in the larder that were older than me that never did us any harm...) Or maybe you've worn your specs daily for years, since childhood, and they're just something you're used to? I'm a varifocal girl these days.
