NOBODY IS PERFECT

LETTER N

And certainly not  me when it comes to keys and glasses ! When my friend Claudie was here, I wanted to take her to Ostend at seafront. It's about 1 1/2 h drive when the highway is not fully packed. We wanted to leave at 9 am at the latest.

I had everything except my glasses on my nose and without glasses I am blind like a mole, I am shortsighted. I looked in my room, no glasses. I tried to remember where I had been in the morning. No glasses in sight and without it is also difficult for me to find them. I called Mr. G. for help. First thing he did was looking in the fridge as I once had put my slippers in there. He looked in all cupboards in the kitchen, turned over the bin, checked the inside of all pots, without any result. Maria my cleaning lady was there too and looked under all the furniture in the house. She removed my bed, found tissues and an old wallet but no glasses. Meanwhile Claudie joined in and at 4 people we were looking for the glasses. Nobody found them. They had just disappeared. Without glasses impossible to drive. Finally I found an old pair which was not really perfect but at least I could see the signs on the street.

After  Mr. G.knowing his wife had  checked the inside of all my shoes, had checked my wardrobe, there was nothing to do, the glasses had vanished.

It was getting late so we left. After an hour I got a call from Mr. G. Maria had found the glasses behind the door of my room. I probably had pushed them there when I took my cardigan ! This was the only place in the house we hadn't looked !

I looked everywhere for my glasses not so long ago before realising I was wearing them!

You made me laugh, Gattina! I know all about losing glasses so also know how frustrating it can be!

Great story, Gattina! I am forever forgetting my glasses, so now I have "readers" in several spots in the house, and also in my purse. My glasses always seem to show up, though!!

Cute story, frustrating at the time but funny looking back.

This is a great story and reminds of the time I was teaching first grade and couldn't find my glasses.

My first graders were laughing at me, when I asked them, What is so funny?" One of them said, "Mrs. Beers, your glasses are sitting on top of your head."

It's a relief to know that I'm in good company for losing glasses and other important things. I'm glad you were able to take your friend to the sea front.

Thanks for the laugh...put your slippers in the fridge??? it is annoying when you can't remember where you put things. I used to lose mine but I heard a trick on the radio once about how to remember stuff. You must say it out allowed when you put your glasses down...I say, "I've put my glasses on the bed." Or "on the bathroom shelf" It is amazing how it works. I have to say it when I shut the garage door too, "I've shut the door" or else I get up the street and can't remember if I closed it or not. Try it!

Blogger is acting odd today. Not sure if my comment went through! Grr! We've started a new thing here when things are lost. We ask ourselves now where would I look last?

I am blind as a bat (maybe more so), and I HATE losing my glasses.

Glad they turned up!
