Blurred Vision

(I’m heading to the hospital in about ten minutes. Having a cataract removed this morning. That mean I have drops in my right eye that blur my vision, and my left eye is far-sighted. So? So I’m probably not seeing what you’re seeing!)

Zing and Zang had gone invisible. What they saw outside the cafe doors was enough to scare them into invisible mode.

The park across the street was full of blue-coated soldiers, all carrying rifles upright on their shoulders.

“Zang, should we teleport home? It looks like things are getting really ugly here in America. I don’t want to be collateral damage.”

“Not yet, Zang. I think they’re just drilling, not actually going into battle.”

“This is tragic. Such a beautiful country, with such a record of incredible success. I hope they can settle this without bloodshed.”

“Me too, Zang. Me too.”

    First, prayers for successful surgery… and a safe one, too. Second… I like this. It speaks volumes and captures that tension present in our land right now. Yesterday morning, we woke to find a horrible accident with explosions had shut down our main thoroughfare north over the Ohio River. ( ) An hour in either direction and that bridge would have been packed with third shift commuters. So very scary.

    1. Thanks for your prayers. So far, so good. A little less blurry and fuzzy today 🙂

      I went and read the article. They wouldn’t show me much since I’m not a subscriber. Was anyone fatally injured? Sounds so dangerous!

        No one was killed. AMEN! But the bridge…it will be closed for days. Our state has been trying to find funding to replace it for at least 10 years that I know of. Maybe this will be the point when they finally do something about it. It’s terrifying to cross and I try to avoid it.

    1. Tell that to AOC and her “squad.” They’re looking for retribution, lists of “sycophants” who need to be “dealt with,” whatever that means. It seems that some have forgotten that this is a nation in which free thinking and free speech is protected.

  2. Very serious for Zing and Zang! I hope they avoid becoming collateral. Glad to hear your cataract op went well. It’s great – I’ve had both my eyes done, and it made a tremendous difference, especially for night driving.

  3. A very timely write during these times of uncertainty.
    Zing & Zang are great character names. Fingers crossed
    there’s limited chaos due to our elections.
    Hope your surgery went well. May you heal quickly and with excellent results.
    My last eye exam had a similar outcome. YUK … future choice I’ll have to make.
