I WAS LUCKY TO BE WEARING GLASSES December 12, 2008 crizlai With traffic jams in and out of the city all the time, I would sometimes travel out on a motorcycle to run some of my errands. There was this time when the sky suddenly turned gloomy without any warning while I was a few miles away from my office. Being aware of the situation then, I quickly finished whatever urgent that needed to be done and rushed back to my office. As I was on my way back, strong wind began to gather and dust was all over the road. The trees were swaying angrily and the loose leaves were forming little twisters all the way. Suddenly, I had an impact on my face and almost skidded onto the rows of cars along the road. Being a careful and alert driver, I managed to control my motorcycle and stopped by the roadside to inspect on the damage. My face was injured with blood oozing out thickly. I realized that a twig had fallen down from the swaying trees and collided onto my face. I was lucky to be wearing a pair of eyeglasses then. If not, I would be blinded for the rest of my life. The impact was so great that it even cracked my eyeglasses. Thanks God I am one who would wear protective eyeglasses whenever I am on a motorcycle. It just saved my eye sight! I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
