#longandShortReviews #Weeklybloggingchallenge 4.8.2020

If you’ve ever read any of my blog posts, you know I can talk.

A lot.

About a great deal  of stuff and not only related to writing.

So today’s topic prompt: Topic(s) I could give an impromptu speech on just sings to me.

Let’s start with the anatomy of the eye and then move on to contact lens care and keeping ( of your eyes and the lenses).

I worked in my husband’s clinic as a Contact lens technician for 20 years. I retired when my first book was published, but I can still give a lecture I wrote for doctors and patients verbatim if asked to right now.

Next. Want to talk about organizing stuff? Marie Kondo ain’t got nuthin’ on me! Containers, culling, and cleaning  are all topics I can ramble on for hours about.

I get excited when I think of all the ways I can stack and store stuff!

Lastly, I was the nursing care coordinator and head of an Alzheimer’s in patient unit before I had my baby. Memory loss, the aging brain, and new techniques and studies for improving cognition and quality of elder life are topics near and dear to me and I could spew on for hours just about memory techniques.

So, that’s it just for starters!!! Let’s see what some of the other authors in this challenge can wax prolific about: L&SR

    Wow, eye anatomy is a good speech topic! I’ve worn glasses for years but have always been too nervous to get contact lenses. (I know someone who got an infection from them. While many people use them without issue, I think of her discomfort every time the topic of contacts comes up. 🙂 )

  2. Go you. I hated my contact lenses, which is why I gave them up in favor of wearing glasses (which I tend to lose). I admire anyone who is good with organization, too. Have i mentioned i lose things? Lol!! Good post!

  4. I love my contacts! Good topic. And I like thinking about organizing.. and I love all the cute little things to organize with. The actual organizing.. hmm.. we’ll talk about that another time. I would especially be interested in the memory talk. I tell people I have a really good memory.. it’s just very short!

  5. Fascinating post, Peg! 🙂 I always admire those who can give speeches without nervous anxiety. Never wore contacts, but I’ve had to wear reading glasses since I was five years old. And organization is the key to my world. 😉

  6. I love how varied these topics are! Memory loss and the brain is a fascinating topic, though.

    I’m loving this prompt; everybody has such interesting, idiosyncratic topics! Alzheimer’s and eye anatomy and organization, oh my!

    My list is here.

    My father had Alzheimer’s. It’s a horrible illness. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/04/wc-040820.html

  9. Glasses since I was 9. Contacts for many years, led to repeated eye infections. Then back to glasses. Eventually, much younger than I expected, family genetics gave me cataracts. Eye doctor did one eye with distance vision. I came home and while watching TV, took off my glasses and could see the screen! Then I looked down at my crocheting and was astounded at how bright the colors were! It was like looking through Saran Wrap, vs. waxed paper. So I called the next morning and got the second eye set up. But I had him put a reading lens in that eye. Now I have what they call monovision. NO MORE GLASSES! I love it! I do have a pair in my truck for when I drive long distances, and need to read far-off highway signs, or at night, when the lights bounce off the astigmatism that insurance wouldn’t pay for me to get fixed. But other than that, I’m glasses-free. Do NOT fear the surgery, as long as you have a good ophthalmologist.


  10. Great answer, and I really love how you illustrate these blog posts!

    Congratulations on your five star review! Woot!
