The book’s words blurred, Rosemary wondered what was going on. She took her glasses off, wiped them on her loose cream nightie. Her gnarled hands began shaking as she put the glasses on.
‘What is wrong with these things?’ Rosemary muttered.
Taking the glasses off, she held them to the page and used them like a magnifying glass. That helped a little, she carried on reading.
When she grew tried, Rosemary set the book aside and noticed that there was another pair of glasses on the table.
‘Oh! My new glasses!’ Rosemary cried, ‘No wonder I couldn’t see!’
