I’m pretty sure Mama knew what she was talking about when she told us that eating our carrots would make us big and strong and improve our eyesight. After all she was right about most everything else. When I went to get my first driver’s license the guy doing the eye exam just laughed at me and told me to come back when I could at least read the top letter on the chart. Pretty sure that was a result of avoiding those good old diced carrots and unfortunately my eyesight seems to be getting worse all the time.
