Thursday: Glasses Debacle

by Megan M. on August 11, 2006 (Blog) |

Okay, let me think. Thursday evening! Oof!

We finally made it back to the hotel. I was physically and emotionally exhausted, worn right down to the marrow. I didn’t know how I was going to keep going – all the waiting around and walking in the rain trying to get the taxi had really taken its toll on me and all I wanted was to be back at the hotel, in my pajamas, with my contacts out of my eyes. I knew if I could just get that far, everything would be okay – and we could maybe celebrate!

So you can imagine my dismay when I couldn’t find my glasses anywhere.

I searched the whole room – they were nowhere. I was deluding myself, thinking I had set them down somewhere before actually putting them in my bag, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that I HAD put them in, they’d been right on the top, in their case. And being right on the top… they could have fallen out anywhere.

I almost immediately lost all sense of cohesion and burst into tears. It was too much, too much intensity! And now I couldn’t take my contacts out, unless I wanted to be blind for the rest of the evening. And don’t get me wrong, contacts are great, but I only ever keep them in for a few hours – they are not relaxing! So the prospect of not getting to relax, after all this stuff… was unbearable.

Mom called the taxi for me, and they looked, but they didn’t find anything. I waited and waited. I called Marty in tears. He’d been up all night waiting to hear how the competition had gone and I can’t imagine me calling in tears was what he’d been hoping for! We talked for awhile and I felt a little better, then insisted he go to sleep. I went to Mom’s room. She called the Eisteddfod and talked to a woman, who knew who I was and offered to look all around the competitors’ area herself, and call my Mom back. I had no idea if she was going to find anything, the glasses could have been ANYWHERE… but she found them and she called Mom back, they’d fallen out in the press room!

My mother, my wonderful mother, took a cab all the way back to the Eisteddfod, a half hour drive, to get my glasses back for me.

She put them in my hands and I just died of happiness. I’d had no idea what I would do if I didn’t find them. There was just no way I could wear contacts to travel home. I cannot properly explain my glee when my glasses were returned to me.

And so commenced the partying!
