Turns out Sroch wasn't stam kvetching- in just six months her prescription really did dramatically change, so she needed new glasses. And as for me, I need multifocals! Which cost ... A lot. Like half a mortgage payment.
I told the girls that I was a little bit unhappy because my glasses were gonna cost so much money. So one daughter says to me, well you can be happy because you can see and you'll be able to see. And the other daughter says to me yeah, and you should be happy because you have the money to pay for it.*
Those girls... :)
