I don’t know if I ever mentioned it on my soggy bloggy or not, but the last time I was visiting Mither and Pop, my glasses got broken. And I mean in a big way.
Note the photographic evidence:
They are missing both lenses. And have been run over, literally.
Anyway, so all I have is this one pitiful little pair of reading glasses that are, (used to be), the right prescription for me to read with, and that’s it. No more seeing distance or medium range for me, it’s way over rated anyway.
So John really likes my little pair of glasses. He says they’re cute and calls them my “tiger eyes”. I have no idea why. I told him they are tortoise shell and he insists they are to be called “tiger eyes”. Keelan, ever observant Keelan, has decided that if her dad is going to call them “tiger eyes” and I am saying they are “tortoise shell”, she needs to have something to call them, too and has chosen… “bunny fluff”. You may think this odd, but it is true to nature, typical Keelan.
Well, I keep losing them cause I take them off when I need to look at anything more than 24″ from my face and I tend to lay them down. Anywhere. So there has been a near constant search going on for my glasses at this house. Today I thought I left them at Target and was full of despair when we got home. Kee heard us talking about the loss of the glasses and then John went in the bedroom and came out. I wasn’t looking at him and all of the sudden Keelan said, “Bunny Fluff!” He was wearing my glasses just to pick at me and I had left them in the bathroom when I brushed my teeth this morning.
So off to buy me one of these handy dandy contraptions!
Now I am better attached to my tiger eyes or tortoise shell glasses… or bunny fluffs.
Huh. Bunny fluffs. That Keelan does have a funny way of naming things. John is wearing this contraption that is a defibrillator and will be in it for the next 3 months, until his cardiologist decides if he thinks he can go without or if he needs to have a permanent one implanted in his chest.
The thing is a bit bulky and constricting and John really dislikes wearing it. So every time he leaves the house Keelan perks up and says, “Dad! Are you wearing your flux capacitor?”
The really funny thing is she has never even seen “Back To the Future”. Just seen lots of skits and Youtube tributes to it. And, of course, the aforementioned “flux capacitor” is always mentioned in these clips.
Which brings me to another point.
Damn! Michael J. Fox was adorable in that movie!

I wish the damned things were self cleaning. With a locating device. And it gives you money.

He is still adorable.
And I am laughing my ass off right now because we have an exact pair of glasses on our cunter right now. Bud dropped them and couldn’t find them until I ran them over with my car. I shit you not!

I’m still aghast at Chief’s typo. snort.
I now officially wear three pairs of glasses. How classy do you think I look with one pair on my face and two hanging around my neck?

When Krissa was last at my house and losing glasses right and left, I pointed out to her that it would be an excellent idea to buy the little cord thingy to go around her neck. No, really she didn’t even give me an opportunity to suggest it. As soon as I said, “Kris, you need to get a—” she interrupted with, No Mither, I will not get one of those things!! They are for old women and I wouldn’t be caught dead in one!!” Now, she announces that she has one without a word about how Mither was right all the time! I swear! I get no credit.

Love the flux capacitor, in fact, I almost have it perfected so that I can go back into my past and get that A that I totally deserved but Mr. Geraghty was being a total poop head!
And how were your dreams last night?

I don’t want to alarm you, but I think one of those locator thingies is a sign of impending age.

Good old Costco. The “granny” glasses came in a 3-pack. I first thought, Christ!, WTF do I need 3 for? I soon learn, like this nice lady, that the 3, placed strategically, saves me a lot of frustration when I surely misplace a pair or even 2. I can avoid the “horse collar” device that way. Speaking of the little tether (horse collar)reminds me of an old joke: A guy was taking beginner’s golf lessons. The instructor couldn’t get the guy to keep his head down and eye on the ball. The instructor looped one end of a cord around the guy’s neck and tied the other end around his testicles. This solved the problem. For women golfers they use a fishhook.

I’m with Ree . . . I am giggling way to hard at Chief’s slip! That contraption they are making your husband wear does not look the least bit comfortable or accomodating, but it is nice that it is allowing them to wait on surgery (if it is even necessary.)
I agree on MJF . . . he was so cute in that movie!

Yay for the Peeper Keeper!! Having been in the Totally Hip Snowboarding and Skiing retail business for almost a decade, i can tell you that every 20something snowboarder worth her salt keeps her peepers on with a peeper keeper! The key is that it’s NOT a gold or silver chain of any kind. I guess the alternative would be getting a new pair of glasses…. and that would be totally KuhRAYzee.
But I would NEVER EVER put my glasses on my cunter. There are just some things one cannot do.
Am loving the flux capacitor!
