Growing Old Sucks, Part II

Another of the wonder things that happens as you age is that your eyesight departs.  Well, partially.  In fact, while my close-up vision has deteriorated, my long-range vision has improved.  So much so that I no longer have to wear glasses to drive.  Yes, I once again have 20/20 vision. 


However, as mentioned above, I can no longer read anything in small print.  Not without my cheaters.  That is, reading glasses.

Another thing about aging is that you forget where you put stuff, so I have to have about 20 pairs of the things scattered around the house so that wherever I perch to read, reading glasses will be ready and waiting for me.  Luckily, The Dollar Tree sells them for a buck each, so having so many pairs lying around the house (and in my purse, etc.) wasn't a huge expense.  But why, oh why, can I never seem to find a pair when I need them?

How about you?  Do you have cheaters, too?
