It's A Miracle

Do you struggle to read small print? I know I do, especially in shops when checking to see if a product contains aspartame, I use to hold the product at arms length and squint theatrically, often without joy, but not anymore, a friend of mine taught me this little trick and it blew my mind. Be prepared for sympathetic looks off people when doing this in a public place, they'll think you're going blind.

Curl your index finger (that's the finger you pick your nose with) into the crook of your thumb pad to create a small pin prick hole see pic above, place it against your naked eye, if needs be, make the hole smaller by tightening your finger and the small print will come into focus.

  1. Ha! It works! Another tip is to pull the skin area on the outer eye towards the ear - that works too.

    1. I'll remember that one, the next time I visit the Chinese supermarket for my Maysan curry paste.

    1. I can tell you a few stories about her that would make you gasp! Like the time she posed naked for a well known artist she used to 'do' for.

  3. You should have been on Don't Ask Me with David Bellamy, Rob Buckman, Miriam Stoppard and Professor Magnus Pyke. Jx

    1. I was just a twinkle in my dad's eye when that programme aired. I'll be more suited for Look Around You with the lovely Olivia Colman.

  4. I couldn't see anything but my finger. Either my finger is too fat or my eyes are too bad.

    1. Did you did take your specs off? Make a pin-hole in a bit of cardboard and look through that.
