Hi all,

Please see below conversation:-

D.A.: Did you use those wire leads in your pace makers?

Wit: No way. They come off the boat, I can see myself that half of them are corroded. And I haven't been twenty-twenty for twenty years.

Anyone can tell the meaning of the bold word in this situation.

________________________________________________

In my view, the expression "twenty-twenty" means "having normal visual acuity". The expression has apparently originated from the testing of vision with standard eye charts from a distance of 20 feet. In the given text, the speaker implies that (s)he hasn't had 20/20 eyesight for twenty years and yet he can see that the wire leads of the pace makers are corroded!
