    I've pretty well resigned to not putting my foot to the pedal without putting on the glasses (just hate ripping out stiches) but I had to share my aha moment. Last night I rummaged through my stash drawer of samples and gift/withs for a new night cream, found something, opened it and put it on my face. Thought, self, I wouldn't spend money on this one, doesn't pass the smell or feel test. When I got up this morning I put on those readers to make sure to note what I used and lo and behold, it was a deep hair conditioner! Guess I'd better buy another pair of those readers for the bathroom!

    Know the feeling...used "body gloss" (you know the stuff with little bits of sparkle) instead of facial moisturiser one morning....looked like something off Star Trek, once that wedges in the wrinkles it's a devil to get off!

    I have readers glasses everywhere! Sewing room, bathroom, office, purse. My old pair of regular bifocal glasses close at hand in the house AND I now wear Contacts!
    No mistakes yet...
    Hate not being able to read like I used to.

    I topped my pumpkin bread with cooked sausage instead of the streussel topping sitting next to the sausage in the fridge. Love sausage, love pumpkin bread just not together.

    glad your skin is doing well.................lol

    I poured myself a coffee and went to the fridge for the milk. Poured milk, brought it back to the fridge, sat at the table and took a sip of coffee: boaaahhhh, it was black!?
    Next to the newspaper the ashtray was filled with milk.......

    I know the feeling. I not only have readers in every room but I wear a pair tucked into my blouse so I always have them on hand. Only problem is that I forget I have them tucked in and so I go into another room looking for another pair. And how many times have they been in the room and you can't figure out where they are. Or they are on your head and you don't realize it.

    I think we all do the same stuff, I've misplaced the regular glasses, and will walk around squinting at table
    tops, b-room sinks.... can't even go anywhere to find a
    new pair, Thank Goodness for being enough of a pack-rat to keep up with the old pair.:)
