Tonight as my husband and I discussed the price of glasses, we wondered why a set of frames would cost $200, as most things are made in China. Then, at the same time, we both took off our glasses to read what was written on our frames, followed by us looking at each other as we cracked up laughing. We smiled at each other as we realized that neither of us could read them without wearing them.
Of course at this point our curiosity was at its peak, requiring that we read each other’s frames. His was made in China while mine was made in Japan. Despite our efforts to avoid purchasing items from China, we discovered that in our need for vision, we never gave it a thought as to where our frames were made.
At least, while living in the USA, we can laugh at our silliness as we both took our glasses off to see where they were made, not giving any thought that our efforts to read would prove fruitless without having them on.
“The most wasted of all days is that in which we have not laughed.” ~Nicolas Chamfort
