Getting old's a bitch...  
.. but it beats the alternative.
Hopping into the shower tonight I felt like I'd missed something, so did a quick inventory - no, I'd taken my socks and undies off, my watch and leather bracelet were on the sink, and I'd removed my leather necklace. All good. Cupped my hands under the spray and splashed water on my face, and that's when I discovered I still had my glasses on.

Hahahahhaa! That's sooo funny! I often walk about looking for my reading glasses, and getting very frustrated at not finding them...only to located them perched right on top of my head. I should learn to check there first, but I never do!

Getting old's a bitch, but it beats the alternative is something I remind myself of on a daily basis....for many reasons.

So at least your glasses were nice and clean after being in the shower...

I've looked for them when they've been on my face, I know where you're coming from! And yes, they were nice and clean.

You know that so reminds me of my mum ...she needs her glasses to find her glasses, well at least you knew where to find them.

Yes, once I'd splashed them and realised they were on my face. *g*

Yes, it wouldn't be the first time I got into the shower still wearing my watch. That can be disastrous.

While I was talking to my mother on the phone I put my mug in to the dishwasher. After hanging up, I went to the fridge to get stuff out for dinner and found my mug sitting on the middle shelf... yeah. *g*

Let me tell you, you are not alone. I once spent ages looking for half a cucumber that I knew was left over from the previous night's salad; I could even remember wrapping it in plastic! And that's where I eventually found it, in the drawer with the plastic wrap.

Eyeglasses become part of you! I keep forgetting I have mine on.

They do, don't they. I feel strange when I'm not wearing them.

Oh no! Have so been there...

Also once stripped off for a communal hot tub, got in, heard a plaintive beeping some time later, and realised that although I had taken off everything else, I had forgotten my pedometer which was hanging round my neck.

Everyone else in the hot tub, only one of whom I had met before, found this very funny, as I slunk off to the bar to find someone with a screwdriver so we could remove the battery. The shame...

Oh god that would be embarrassing! *g* At least there was no-one here to witness my humiliation; just the cats, and they ain't talkin'.

LOL! I've done that a time or two myself. The old brain ain't what it used to be!

You're right, the old brain is a poor shadow of what it once was. Ah, age... so not fair.

Probably one that's best unseen.
