The Eyes Have It

I think I'm going blind. Well, not blind exactly but with advancing age my eyesight is failing. I told my wife and she said I should go the the optometrist. She's pretty smart, eh? Like the brightest pupil in class.

So before things go too far, and I make a spectacle of myself, I'd best make that appointment.

I'm noticing things like seeing the television much better with my glasses off than on. That's not right. I'm sure iris-k severe eye strain.

I notice, too, when I'm driving my vision is blurry. That's not good. Driving like that lense itself to having an accident.

I'm fine with things close up. Like books. I have no problem at all when I'm reading or on the computer. Or clipping my nails or picking my teeth. When properly framed, things are fine.

And I test myself from time just to make sure. (Boy, that's gotta be the worst one, huh? i-test? hahaha)

But I'm not alone when it comes to certain concerns related to aging.

The other day Mrs D was bemoaning the fact she was growing old. Of course, for me, Mrs D is as lovely today as the day I met her. And I said to her, "Honey, you just get more beautiful everyday."

Oh, sure, thanks" she says, "this from a guy who says he's going blind!"

That Mrs D. She's so damn observant. Well, I tried. I'm phoning the eye doctor today.

This post was pretty cornea?

Despite my well-known adversity to puns, I thought this was blinking brilliant, Doof! An im-macula piece of work. Roth

I've got a ton of great words to use as puns but once again, can't figure out how to use them. Instead of trying, I'm just going to say this: "Huzzah! Your mojo is back!"
Debra She Who Seeks said…
Clearly, your punning ability is still 20/20!
nonamedufus said…
Well, actually no. I'm losing my sight, eh? (Yeah, I saw.)
nonamedufus said…
I'm going blind and all you wanna do is make jokes?
nonamedufus said…
Ha ha, good one Debra. It was off the (eye) chart!

Nicky said…
This piece offers great insight into your comedic vision, o punny man.

nonamedufus said…
Not really, Babs. Outta sight, outta mind.
nonamedufus said…
Put a lid on it, Nicky. I wouldn't want to lash out at you. Heh, heh, heh.

Too cute! As for me, my arms are no longer long enough, hence the reading glasses.Getting older is a bitch!
meleahrebeccah said…
I can't believe HOW MANY puns you were able to insert here. You are HILARIOUS!!

And don't feel old! If it makes you feel any better I have to wear contact lenses all the time AND reading glasses at the same time - if I attempt to use my computer or read a book!
nonamedufus said…
That's like when I first got glasses. My arms weren't long enough to read the TV Guide!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, man, is that what I have to look forward to? Poor you.
meleahrebeccah said…
Probably not! I've had problems with my eyesight since I was nine years old!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, geez, is there any illness you haven't experienced?
meleahrebeccah said…
I don't really consider eyesight issues an illness. More like bad genetics.
nonamedufus said…
That's true, you're the expert!

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
