A friend of mine was recently telling me that she couldn’t see something because her eyes are 43. She herself is 46. She quickly stopped to correct herself because she somehow overlooked her last three birthdays when she spoke.
First, I say good for her. We should all overlook birthdays as much as possible.
Then I start to wonder. Are her eyes in fact younger than she is?
Eyes spend almost half of their life covered and not actually doing their job. (you know, seeing?)
Your body and your brain still work as you slumber. You breathe, you dream, etc. But your eyes aren’t doing anything at all.
So, are they younger than you are?
Because if so I am going to start counting my age in eye years.
Getting older sucks.
