They mock me...

I've always been fortunate enough to have perfect eyesight... That is until NOW!!!

I never REALLY believed, but it's TRUE!!! You turn 40 and everything starts to go straight down the crapper! I can vividly remember the days when I used to be able to thread a needle without cursing... Not anymore, now I have to reach for the 'GLASSES'... They're not as much an aide for seeing but more of a reminder that I'm getting old. Not only that but the case mocks me every time I open it up to retrieve my specs... C'mon, is it just me or does that say S A D on the interior cover of my glasses case? So every time I try to do something with my bleery old eyes I stubbornly refuse to give in and be mocked by an inanimate object... That is until I poke myself with the sewing needle 6 or 7 times... Then I relent... Grab the case and quickly open it... In that same instant I say out loud, "SHUT-UP... I KNOW!"... Because it's simply stating the truth.

how's this for old eyes - it looks like "S A V" to me. Does that mean "saved" by the glasses? I've worn mine since I was 7, and you know I have kids your age. How about wearing STRONG glasses and then using a magnifying glass to thread a needle. Now that's SAD.
