How many people out there, who wear glasses, – not just for reading either – sleep with them on? I spotted a cartoon concerning Bill Gates asleep and it commented that he slept with his glasses on.
So do I.
I got into the habit of it years ago when, as a young man, I lived in a cheap apartment in a not so nice neighborhood. Several times I had to get up in a hurry because someone was trying to break into my place and I hated fumbling for my glasses in the dark. Even leaving a small television or night light on did not help, so I started sleeping with them in place.
My vision is pretty fuzzy without them and at night, things are even worse, so the few times I have had to arise in a hurry, having the glasses in place has saved me many seconds.
I don’t consider this habit strange. Do you?
