I was innocently chatting with a couple of moms outside the kindergarten classrooms. I have no recollection what we were discussing, probably something very unimportant. Well, at least, pertaining to my story it is. Regardless, we were maybe laughing and gesturing our hands and words were coming out of our mouths. Small talk, big hand movements.
Suddenly, a pair of glasses drop on the floor. We all look down, inspecting. Obviously, I thought to myself, they are mine. I mean, look at them. Big tortoise-shell, glam glasses. Who else would they belong to? I mean, duh.
I bent down to pick them up. My glasses.
Someone said excuse me, and reached around my hand to pick up the glasses.
Those are mine, I asserted.
No, she replied. They are mine. She met my gaze, determined.
Well then! I exclaimed, exasperated. Where are mine?
After all, they weren’t on my head where I always left them.
She smiled at me.
They are in your hand, she said. Smugly.
Sure enough, they were. I blushed as I put my glasses on my face. Which, by the way, were WAY cooler than the ones in question.
Yes. It’s finally happened. I’m turning into my mother.

I have ‘lost’ my glasses on top of my head before. I turned into my mom a long time ago… I should seek therapy. You are totally the coolest mom though.

Ugh – try doing that at the airport, with your 3 year old instead of your glasses. Yup, we must be getting old. And yet so fabulous, still! 😉

Yeah but it’s just so darn cute when we do things like that. Not dumb like when our mom’s did it.
I lose my glasses on my nose all the time. 😉
I am sure your glasses were WAY cooler than hers. You’re lucky she didn’t steal them!
That is so funny! Similar things have happened to me before, too. Actually, lately I’m forgetting everything and losing and misplacing everything. I think I need to go see a doctor! 😉

I’m with you. I’m turning into my grandmother, and everyone else’s. I thought I was talking about John Paul Jones, the Revolutionary War Naval Commander (“I have not yet begun to fight!”) and guess what I said? Come on — I know you can guess.
James. Earl. Jones.

Aww! I don’t think it’s getting old — just being wrapped up in the conversation. At least you had an excuse — last weekend, I totally took someone else’s grocery cart at the store. We had some similar items, and I just went right off with it. She caught up with me several aisles away. I…had no words. Mega-blush! 🙂
