On how prescription glasses work.

“Miss, why you have your sunglasses on? We’re inside.”
“They’re prescription, guys. I haven’t had time to switch, and if I take them off altogether, I can’t see.”
“Do it!”
<I roll my eyes and comply.>
“You’re all blurry now. Just little blobs of color.”
“WAIT. Am I still black?”
“Yes – a prescription doesn’t change the color of what I see.”
“Oh. Damn. It’d be cool if it turned me like, Asian or something.”
