The first time the optometrist office called, they called me LAY. I said LEE. They said, oh LEE.

The second time they called, they called me LAY. I said LEE. They said, oh LEE. I thought, this is embarrassing, why don't they just write something phonetic in my file.

Today they called and asked for Laura.

LEIGH?

LAURA STEIN?

THIS IS LEIGH STEIN?

Your name's not Laura?

NO.

It's only a matter of time before someone calls you 'Leg'. Leg Stein.

Given the way you've described your sight, are you sure you've actually been going to an optometrist? It sounds like you wandered into a mental ward by accident and the patients have just been playing along, making calls from the nurse's station, giggling about your eyesight until tapioca pudding dribbles out of their gaping mouths.
