When I was younger, I was near-sighted. I wore glasses to drive, when I went to the movies, yada-yada-yada. Then...my eyes did a switcheroo. Now, I no longer need glasses to drive, go to the movies, yada-yada-yada. Now, I need them to read.
When I wore glasses to drive, etc. I had ONE pair and somehow, I never lost them. I could never eat with them on, but I wore them quite a bit of the time, and somehow when I'd put them down, I would always find them.
Those days are gone.
Mr. L suggested I get chain to attach to a pair of glasses.
Not so, Mr. L reminded me. Magnum P.I. (the ORIGINAL Magnum that is) often wore his sunglasses on a cord.
Nope. Wasn't gonna do it.
After my mother passed away, I came across a chain and a cord for hanging glasses amongst her things. I took them home and let them sit...for three years.
One day this past fall, I was so frustrated from my glasses hunt that I searched out those hangers.
*Sigh* I guess I'm now old, because I end up wearing one or the other of those glasses most days. That doesn't mean I don't take them off and misplace them, because I do--and a couple of times a day. (I guess I really just don't like wearing glasses.)
Does this happen to you? Do you have a solution? If so, please share!
