Yes, it was Easter on Friday but I had long had my bi-annual eye check-up scheduled at the ophthalmologist .. and so off I went. It’s a longish affair, since the assistant does a preliminary check, and then she put drops in to dilate the iris of my eye (which takes awhile), so that they can better peek inside (with a very bright light!).
So afterwards my eyes were very sensitive to light, and I had to keep the afternoon sunlight from flooding into the kitchen and bounce off the countertop ! And so all of this gives me an excuse to post the limerick about relativity and a lady named Bright that has reportedly been around since 1923 –
There was a young lady named Bright
Whose speed was far faster than light;
She set out one day
In a relative way
And returned on the previous night.
