Three women, who were very old friends, met at a city restaurant for their yearly dinner date. As the three ladies were handed a menu, they each, embarrassingly, put on a pair of glasses.
‘‘I only need mine for the very, very fine print,’’ explained the first lady.
The second one remarked, ‘‘I only need to use mine when the light is particularly bad.’’
The third one confessed, ‘‘I rarely wear mine at all — except when I need to see.’’
