Not a speck!

October 16, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I stepped out of the bathroom at 7:42am, having just finished brushing. I hadn’t noticed it before. It had started raining. Now, though I don’t have a cycle, leaving the hostel at 7:45 for a class is perfectly normal, even during quizzes. But today, it was raining. And I had a quiz. I had no cycle.

I started on foot. When it rains, my head automatically bows down, as I find wet spectacles a big pain. So I try to prevent any single drop of rain from falling on the glasses. Today, it was not a heavy downpour, but it was not a drizzle either.

I decided to remove the glasses and kept them safely in my pocket before leaving. I had to walk till Humanities block. Near OAT, I met Hypo on cycle who agreed to ride me till HSB. He asked about my specs. I told him about the problem (we discussed about specs with wipers).

Metres away from exam hall, happy that I had managed to keep it dry, I took out the specs from my pocket. And there it was – in two pieces!

When you have an eyesight which is so weak that it can’t decipher text on a notebook till the notebook is 15 cm from the eye, staying without specs for a prolonged time is quite painful. And I had an exam which, in all probability, had already started.

I took the exam without specs, often bending so low into the paper that my nose touched it. It was an objective exam and I was counting on few people to help me. No way now.

After the exam, I had a class where there was a chance of me having to present a report. It was a random thing and fortunately, the prof didn’t pick our group. I had to endure three more classes. Between these, I tried riding a cycle without specs. It was not difficult but cool.  🙂

Now, some temporary repair has been done, thanks to Fevi Quick and tape and Chola. Let’s see how long this lasts. Too lazy to go out and get it repaied.
