Being very distracted by my upcoming move, I decided on a shortcut to my usual goals of simplifying life and maintaining a positive attitude. To continue my weekly posts, but save myself some time and stress during the moving process, I have cut back on my writing time and am sharing something that makes me laugh each week.
This week’s laugh is about something I did. It was pretty foolish, and a little costly, but I can laugh about it now.
My son wears a contact lens in one eye. He gets a new contact lens every two weeks, and I gave him a fresh one in the morning, on the appropriate day. I was right on top of things, and I was feeling pleased with myself. My son opened the package, but hadn’t put the lens in yet, and he told me so. Just seconds later, in a cleaning frenzy, I whisked away the open package. Into the trash went my son’s expensive custom order lens.
He looked at me. “Wha…? Did you just…?”
“Did I what?”
“You mean that lens package? It was empty wasn’t it? Didn’t you just put it in?”
“No, I just told you.”
“Oh…ohhh. You did tell me! Whoops!” I peered into the trash. “Maybe we can…”
“I’m not putting it in now.”
“Don’t worry, I can’t find it anyway.”
