Seeing Thru Smudges
So I'm sitting here at my computer and all of a sudden I realize.. Whoa! The screen of my monitor is absolutely covered with smudges and dust and fingerprints and little sneeze dots and marks everywhere. I can't believe how dirty it is. And I know it's been dirty for a while. (I don't remember the last time I windexed it or whatever). I don't know how I couldn't have seen the marks before because as soon as I saw it I couldn't stop seeing em and I started to get a headache and I had to get the windex and clean it off.
After it was clean I guess I became more sensitive to seeing cause I took my glasses off and held them up to the light. And my lenses were all dirty. Scratches and marks and prints and stuff. I was like 'whoa' again. And I noticed I have a scratch right down the middle of one lens and am mad cause I think I'm gonna have to get a new lens or something. I cleaned them off as best as I could.
And while I had the windex out I cleaned my bathroom mirror which had a bunch of toothbrush splatter dots and water marks (haven't noticed them before either). And I cleaned my tv screen. (filthy with blackdusty stuff).
I'm sort of annoyed because I was perfectly fine looking through my smudges and dust and marks. They didn't seem to bother me before but now that I know they're there- I'll have to keep an eye on them. I guess it's better to be seeing cleanly clearly but living with smudges was so much easier. Hassle free. And they didn't bother me. Now I feel I'm going to always notice smudges and marks. And watch out for them...
So now I have a new thing to do. Drat. Hopefully soon I'll be able to shake this obsessive need for clarity and return to a more casually smudgy lifestyle.
