I lounge in bed until my husband gets his morning routine out of the way and sometimes, if he dawdles, I'm getting pretty desperate for the bathroom. This morning was one of those mornings~ He'd barely cleared the door before I was past him. When I'd finished, I noticed his cell phone beside the sink and took it back to the bedroom with me (he's on-call at the moment). The routine resumed, but after a couple of minutes I heard this plaintive cry: I can't find my glasses! I must be losing my mind, I'm sure I had them. :emoticon-dont-know:

I started listing common glasses-hiding spots: beside his reading chair, beside the bed, by the computer, on the dining room table next to his work computer. No, no, no and no. In the shower? By the sink? No, no. It's getting late and panic is starting to set in. Thinks I, well, I'll go get my glasses and see if I can spot his, checking to make sure they hadn't gotten mixed up in the duvet or laid on the dresser. Glasses duly gotten, I discovered to my horror (stop laughing, you!), that yes, I had his glasses on my face! Must have put them on when I picked up his cell phone! The worst thing is that I could see perfectly well. Good thing I go to the eye doctor next month! :blush:

Ah well, Jeannie, at least if the worst came to the worst and you lost or broke your glasses you could always use your hubby's as a spare pair (he would then have to use yours and the whole thing could get very complicated!! :emoticon-dont-know: ) :lol:

I'm short sighted and only wear glasses for driving and watching the television. I have two sets in each car (ordinary and sun glasses) and another set by the television plus one pair in my handbag and a pair with a different prescription for the computer. Thank goodness I don't need them for reading as well or we wouldn't be able to move for glasses! My husband wears them all the time, so doesn't have to keep swapping them about.....probably just as well! ;)

Hello Jeannie

Now I thought the punch line was going to be that the glasses were on hubby's face! Starting the day off with a laugh is such a good idea...so who can I laugh at...volunteers please! :woohoo:

Take care.

Hehehehe- I think that there ought to be a little signalling device in glasses to allow those of us who can't see more than a few inches in front of their face to be able to find them. Sort of like those cordless phone locating signalling buttons. I can't see to find my glasses without having my glasses on. A certain catch 22 there.

That is too funny Jeannie, I tend to have mine on top of my head while in a panic trying to find where I put them! I need them for everything now, I tried the verifocal thing but I couldn't get used to how you have to hold your head to read with them. Now I have one pair for each, reading, computer, distance and get confused as to which is which! And it is annoying having to switch all the time, I think I will give the verifocals a go again hehe
