When I was a kid my parents let me stay up way past my bedtime to watch Jaws on network TV. Right after Brody blows up the shark, the station cut to commercial and I was whisked off to bed. I was eight. Even though it was like 10:55pm on a school night, I spent most of the night thinking about what happened next and I only fell asleep out of exhaustion.
I'm sure it seems ridiculous, but I really don't like to miss out on things. Not as an eight year old and certainly not now.

This accounts for at least half of the reason why I've avoided the eye doctor for the past five years. Perhaps more rationally, the other half was my really crappy vision insurance that insisted I go to crotchety old men that only have office ours from 10 am to 4 pm on weekdays. I just don't want to burn time on the weekend and often can't take time off from work.
