The woohoo moment? I opened my email this morning and found a confirmation from Chapters telling me my order has been shipped. Which order is that? JR Ward’s latest, Phury’s story. Woohoo!!!! I should be getting it tomorrow or so – my Black Dagger Brotherhood fix is almost here!
The D’oh moment for today? Gizmo Guy usually goes to bed earlier than I do, so when I head to bed, I try not to disturb him; I creep into our pitch-black bedroom, and undress in total darkness. I have perfected determining whether whatever I’m putting on for the night is inside-out or backwards by feel. At some point in that routine I take off my glasses and put them on the night table beside my bed. By feel. Most times I manage to put them squarely in the middle, but occasionally I misjudge and they end up right on the edge and at some point during the night they slide off. So I get up this morning, and start looking for my glasses. Hmm, they’re not on the night table. Oh oh. I check the usual spots – the floor between the night table and my side of the bed. Behind the night table. In front of … well, you get the idea. No glasses. So I drag out a flashlight I keep in the drawer and get on my hands and knees, shining it under the bed, under the night table. No glasses.
Once Gizmo Guy returns from the bathroom, I enlist Gizmo Guy’s help … who looks at me and tells me … Yup, you guessed it. I’m wearing them. I have no memory of putting them on. But the tip off should have been that I could actually see the floor instead of it all being a blur. So yeah, I had to chuckle and shake my head at my own … idiocy? Talk about one of those classic “you’re getting older” moments.
