The other day I had a bit of fear instilled in me when I was getting dressed. No, it didn't involve looking in the mirror either -although that's something that gives me a bit of a shock every time I do that.
Nope. I couldn't see!
And why was that?
Well, because for some odd reason or other I couldn't find my prescription eyeglasses!
Actually, I could find one pair but not the ones I normally wear. The last time I got new eyeglasses -two years ago this coming December -instead of purchasing just one pair, I signed up for the big sales deal ya know -buy one pair and get the second pair at half price. It sounded like a good deal to me and that way, if anything ever happened to one pair of glasses, I would then have a reserve pair to use. I really do need that type of insurance for myself because I am darned near blind as a bat without them and definitely would eliminate my ability to drive, for sure, if I didn't have the glasses!
Well, I hunted and I hunted -and I knew I had taken them off and put them on the dresser beside my bed when I had turned in the night before, but somehow or other, they must have grown legs and decided to go on vacation and travel around the house -or who knows where.
The hunt went on here for my glasses for a good two days though and then I finally found 'em!
They were where I had thought I had put them -on the dresser, all right -except that Miss Maya had accidentally put something over them which hid them from me completely! It wasn't anything she did as a deliberate move -just that she moved a little book of hers that was also sharing dresser space with my stuff and the way it was positioned, the glasses were underneath a page and completely out-of-sight.
And with my vision, putting things out-of-sight is not exactly a difficult task to start!
