    What's the meaning of the conversation

    I have some words here hard understand when I learning English by reading Garfield comics:

    1, Who knows what the future holds?
    Less of this,I hope

    2,Maybe medical science will make major advance

    3,Like curing those little floaty specks at the edge of your vision
    and the big one in the middle of mine

    Can anyone explain for me? Thanks

    Less of this, he refers to something he doesn't like so he doesn't want to experience it in the future I hope

    If I assume that 2 and 3 are in the same cartoon:
    2,Maybe medical science will make major advances

    3,Like curing those little floaty specks at the edge of your vision
    and the big one in the middle of mine 'specks' - occasionally vision has very small dots which appear to float in front of our eyes - whoever said this hopes that medical science will find a cure for this. The person he is talking to (Garfield?) is the person (big speck) he sees - he is trying to make a joke and suggest he needs a cure.

    Can anyone explain for me? Thanks
    Hope that is a little clearer - remember the language will not be as simple since it's supposed to be funny. There will be some 'playing' with the meaning of words.
