You know you are old

in


when you reach up and find a pair of reading glasses on top of your head while you are wearing a pair with one side thing missing(what is that part of the glasses called again?). And there's another way that you know- you forget what things are called and where things are or where you put them. I don't lose my car on a regular basis I just plain never remember where I parked it(this happens at the Mall or supermarket usually). And then there is this - I have to go back and retrace my steps (walk back upstairs) to remember why I went downstairs in the first place. So what's next? I did go and buy 2 more pairs of glasses so I threw out that broken pair. Now I have a pair on the nightstand, here at the computer desk, downstairs in the kitchen, in my pocketbook and in my labcoat. I guess next I can get one of those string things and wear them around my neck .

I haven't checked my mail yet, but I see you managed to add a few links - that's great :)

I wear glasses for long-distance, and since I don't need them in front of the computer or while reading / cooking etc. I tend to leave them all over the house. Hence the string thing.
I started it with sunglasses though.

Man, have you ever described my situation. Aside from trying to keep track of my glasses, I also contend with the occasional annoyance of trying to figure where I put my eyeglass case.

dog1net, Eyeglass case? what's that? never even considered that cause you're right one more thing to keep track of. And anyway the ones that I buy for $2 don't come with cases.
