Well, just a few months ago, I was an average person with a cell phone, a driver's license, and long-distance vision. How quickly it all slips away. Three pairs of prescription glasses disappeared in my house or who knows where. And so did the cell phone, and I have procrastinated in replacing all of them. My license expired. Then I couldn't get the new license because I would fail the vision test.* A brake light breaks (which of course makes it a thousand times more likely that I'd be pulled over and my lack of glasses noticed -- that's a big ticket). And then, the car battery fades. I think.
