Concerning

This morning, on the way to work, I heard a commercial for an opthamologist (am I spelling that right?) offering "Lasik parties" at his office.  Bring a friend with you, and you both get a discount on Lasik surgery.  Bring MULTIPLE friends, and everyone gets a HUGE discount on Lasik!  Plus, they promise to make it a fun-filled "party," complete with privacy.  
?????

As someone who has had Lasik (and who did not find it especially fun), I don't really feel that the words "surgery," "party," and "discount" should necessarily be in the same sentence.  

Thoughts?

Good catch on the overpronation! I really need to sleep a little before I blog!

I so agree. I mean EVERYONE loves a good party, but one where a laser cuts your eye and if you do one wrong thing, you're blind. Not exactly something for a party! Yikes.

What is this world coming to? Everyone should totally think like us and the problems of the world would disappear. :)

Um for real! One little mistake and hello...your blind. I don't want the word discount anywhere near that.

Scary! I want Lasik but have been to chicken to go thru with it. The idea of it freaks me out and doing it at a party? Even more so!!

Um, no. I'm not going anywhere to have surgery where I could go blind and they call it a party. I'm scared enough as it is.

AMEN to that! I just had LASIK last Thursday and I do not think those words belong anywhere close to each other! Gives me chills! Plus, people really shouldn't bargain shop for Lasik, they are preforming surgery on your eyes people! haha
