hi friends--happy friday!

so i was sitting at the airport waiting on my flight. because i'm an Old Middle-Aged Guy, i now have to wear those little $10 reading glasses you can find at walgreens. i pulled out rolling stone magazine and put on my reading glasses.

((i have this stress related condition which has caused me to lose a slight bit of vision in my right eye. i had to tell you this so the story would make sense.))

as i'm starting to read, i notice a guy, about 25 or so, sitting across from me. he's looking at me and has this raised-eyebrow, smirk and the general look on his face said, "dude, you can't be serious. right? i mean you just can't."

i did a sort of double-take and then stared the guy down until he looked away. he looked away and just shook his head, giving me one last quick glance.

i went back to reading, thinking "WHAT exactly is this guy's problem? why in the world would somebody just start staring at you with that kind of look on their face?"

i read for a few minutes and then this guy just got up and walked away. i watched him leave and as he was walking away, i reached up with my right hand to adjust my glasses. i happened to barely touch the inside of the right rim and when i did, i realized i was touching nothing but air. i could put my finger all the way through and touch my eyelid.

the right lens had fallen out but i couldn't tell because of this condition in my right eye. that guy, of course, was looking at me like that because i was sitting there like MR. Peanut wearing a monocle and acting like everything was normal.

or it's possible that he thought i was a grown retarded man who had found these in the trash and was wearing them as "pretend" glasses.

and then, of course, i'd stared back at him like HE was the one with a problem. picture a grown middle aged man who may or may not be retarded, self-righteously staring at you with pretend monocle glasses. yes, i'm sure i looked like a complete mental patient.

middle age is so fun!!

thanks......it's amazing how someone can slap you with court orders forcing you to ( again ) put on hold lifelong dreams, and then call later in the day to just say hi........ Shocked
