When Paul and I were dating in college, a Magic Eye store popped up in the mall. Once in a while we'd go in and stare at the pictures on the wall. It took me a dozen trips before I figured out how to make my eyes relax enough to see the hidden pictures pop out. I remember being irritated that Paul figured it out before I did.
At a recent yard sale I picked up several Magic Eye books for a quarter a piece for the boys. It's been more than twenty years, but I still remember how to relax my eyes to see the pictures. I guess it's kind of like riding a bike - once you figure it out you never forget. Still, it was exciting when the 3D eagle popped out of the first picture I studied.
How about you, readers? Did you ever frequent the Magic Eye stores in the mall back in the early 90s?
