To my son Tommy,

If anything could be considered inevitable, you needing glasses some day tops that list. Your mother needs glasses; your father needs glasses; your grandparents need glasses; you come from a long line of glasses wearers. Barring any super scientific gene correction ocular therapy procedure, you are going to be sporting the spectacles, more likely sooner than later. In fact, you put on my glasses today and then said you could read the letters on the television better. I know they say you should never wear another persons prescription glasses in fear of damage to your eyesight, but they also say if you make faces you might get your face stuck like that. They lie to you. Anyways, last year the eye doctor said you could hold off on glasses. We have another annual appointment coming soon. When we took the picture of you, you laughed and said you looked funny and different. You might have your own pair of glasses sooner than you think.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
