"Mum, I want to wear con."
"Huh, what con....? I asked her. She is a very soft spoken girl WHEN she is not angry, I always have to ask twice before I can catch her words. Either I am a bit/half deaf or she is talking too soft, meow meowww.....
We were at the mall and she stopped at Focus Point Optical. I made a wild guess... Con means Contact Lens, is it?? Do youngsters call them "Con" instead of contact lens nowadays?
Coming back to the story, she "pulled" me into the optical shop, went for her eyes' check up, had a briefing with the salesperson comparing this and that, and finally ... we came out empty handed.
Are teenagers wearing contact lens nowadays even when schooling? I remember I first wore my contact lens when I was in my late twenties... (and that was decades ago.....)
"Wait till u start working first, girl... meanwhile, continue to wear your blackie frame specs..."
