Then why wear a t-shirt with text on it?  I never understood that.  Unless one is poor enough to have to wear what is available, or gifted to one, etc.

She has my full sympathy!  When I got a corneal ulcer I couldn't read for a couple of days, then had a patch on the injured eye and could only read with the other one, which gave me headaches.  It was the longest week in my life.  (This was before audiobooks so I don't know if that would have helped.  Probably not.)
