100 Facts #6
I first got contact lenses after I lost a pair of glasses on an amusement park ride. It wasn't a coaster, it was one that spun you round-and-round. My glasses had been a bit loose, and off they flew into the air, and probably under one of the carts. "Lost" is exaggerating. We found them later, quite mangled. I had wanted contacts for a while, and this was my opportunity! My parents made me pay half the cost of them though, since I hadn't had my glasses fixed when I noticed they were loose. I happily paid up and haven't gone back to frames since.
