Found my contact lens

Found my missing contact lens. And it's a big deal because I lost it 24 hours ago. And I'd only had it a week--a replacement for one I had just lost before that. And these are so damned expensive--over $100 per lens--because they are gas permeable and bifocal, you don't want to be losing them every week. I knew I had lost it near the stairs so I searched the extended area all around (a blue contact on teal carpet?). Retraced my steps to the garage, in the car, to the pantry, everywhere I'd been, but no luck. I gave up and wore my old prescription lens today. Then tonight, putting some things away in the bedroom, I thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be funny if I just looked down and there it was?" So I looked down. And there it was.

The moral of the story is: If you're going to get old and careless and senile, at least be lucky.

No kidding... though I doubt the old and senile part. Fortunately I use "ready readers" purchased cheap at the big box stores. And lose them by the dozens.

I wish readers would do it for me. I have weird eyes. But I'm getting cataracts. And the good news about that is, when I finally have to have surgery, they'll be able to correct my vision with implanted lenses and I won't need contacts anymore. But the tell me I may sometimes need readers. *sigh*

That reminds me of my most frequent comment about golf. When I hit a good shot and am complimented on it. My response usually is: "I'd rather be lucky than good."
