the smell of my desperation has become a stench

And so it is

Marlo got her eyes tested at preschool and they sent home a note saying, “Are you aware that your child can’t see?” So she got tested, and yeah. Her vision is 20/80, and with glasses it’s corrected to 20/40. She wore them for two hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday, six hours yesterday, eight hours today. Starting tomorrow she has to wear them full time. And now my life will be measured out in increments of WHERE ARE YOUR GLASSES? WHERE ARE YOUR GLASSES? WHERE ARE YOUR GLASSES?
