My lack of significant eye sight is becoming a challenge. For all of us. For instance, I misinterpret things I’ve read, I can’t quite make out a face in the distance and far too often I’m left squinting like Mr. Magoo. I guess Father Time has decided to make me blind as a bat as well as physically uncoordinated and awkward in social situations. Thanks for that. That’s almost as awesome as having an allergic reaction to your allergy medication. I’m thinking pretty soon I’m going to need a cane. And a seeing eye-dog. I walked out of Tim Hortons’ one day and I thought a sign on the door read Free WTF! I LOVED THAT SIGN!! I remember asking my husband if the Tim Horton’s company can legally put WTF! on their doors without anybody complaining. He looked at me a little weird until son spoke up and said, “No, mom. IT SAYS FREE WiFi!!” Ohhhhh….But I still wanted to try out the WTF sign on our front door, but Hubby wouldn’t go for it. I know, right? Genius. It would have been like, “WTF_________” fill in the blank, like “WTF are you here for?”; or “WTF is that shit on your head?”; or “WTF were you thinking knocking on my door without any bottles of wine in your hand?” Yeah, all the missed opportunities are keeping me awake at night. Or, when I thought D’s email wished Nurse Betty would ‘get some soon’ really she wished she would ‘be home soon’, or the time I thought my daughter’s text read ‘my ass is too boring’ when really it said ‘my dress is too long’ …I know. Why would you think you have a boring ass? Who told you that? What are the qualifications of an exciting ass? Is there a pass/fail grade curve the highschool put out on asses that I somehow missed? I NEED THE WTF SIGN!!!
I just wrote the most awesome email to my friends detailing my week of trials and tribulations at work that at best can be described as The Eternal Fuck-Up. Work, not the email. It was an epic tale of good vs evil; right vs wrong; burger vs sandwich. I wish you all could read it. Jesus was even in there for a cameo. Really, it was pretty damned good. It’s a good thing they blithely look away after reading the shit with which I inundate their inboxes. If no replies come rolling my way soon, I’ll have to send out warnings/threats of more emails to come that look more like spam and junk mail. I’m shocked they haven’t blocked me or junked my stuff already. Wait, maybe they have and I don’t know it yet. Maybe they’ve all banned together like some little gangsta posse and decided to spam my ass behind my back, sorta like stabbing me in the face while I was sleeping. Pfft….nah, they’re just waiting for a follow-up…I just know it….
Since this writing, most of my DH ladies have subsequently replied…they still love me…excuse me while I have a Sally Field moment….

I’m 27 and I feel like you just wrote about a typical day in my life. ❤
I’m not sure whether to thank you or to pass on my condolences to you….
Hilarious post! I think I might be getting as blind as a bat, too…heavy sigh…..
Happens to the best of us!
Just wait til you turn 30, Rogue.
Ummm….yeah. Thirty, forty, fifty…it’s all the same, really….
You’re 29, right?
Right…plus a few added years for comfort. That’s how it goes around here…
Well, you look 29.
Well, that’s awfully sweet of you to say.
I guess the good thing is that your eyesight is bad enough to be able to laugh about it! Gotta love the WTF sign!!!
Thanks, Frank! Laughter is always a better alternative….
