Here’s the guest post you’ve been waiting for! Floey’s account of her tenth birthday celebration in Chicago Monday…
by AnnMarie Florence Czerwinski
I experienced a birthday of a lifetime. I got to go to the ocularist with my great ol’ Aunt Betha.
It was a little freaky but it was really cool. First probably the weirdest part. The doctor pulled out her eye with a suction cup thingee! Then he let me watch him clean it.
He rubbed this gooey stuff on it rubbed it on different wheels and then rinsed it off then we left.
We walked to the Christkindl Market to eat some good food and then walked to the Bean.
By the way I fixed Betha’s cell phone, too.
Back to Great Ol’ Aunt Betha: It’s true! Floey did fix my cell phone – the VoiceOver app I use to make it talk wasn’t working, and like all ten-year-old kids in America in 2015, Floey knows how to slide and tap her fingers on an iPhone screen to make it do what it’s supposed to do.
PS: Janet, Floey’s mother, asked me to add one detail her ten-year-old neglected to mention in this guest post: before Floey and I left his office, the ocularist did remember to use that “suction cup thingee” to pop my prosthetic eye back in.
