Intoxicating Gibberish From the Guy at the End of the Bar

Yo, Fat Guy…

For the first time in too many years, I actually did send out some Christmas cards. Not as many as I’d like, though… turned out to be a larger project than I had anticipated.

A few months ago, I finally stooped to buying some readers. Yeah, farkin’ READING GLASSES. The corker? When I was trying to read the price on the pair I bought, I had to put on another pair to see what the gott damned tag said. This has seriously pissed me off. One month, I can see… the next, I’m trying to decipher ink smudges.

As I was filling out the cards, I was quietly going nuts. Clear, blurry, clear, blurry, blurrily clear, clearly blurry. By the time I made it through a couple of boxes, my head was pounding. And not so much from the eye strain… it was more from the clenched teeth. Stupid dumbhead eyes!

Fat Dude… if you head through Gangland this evening, would you please bring me some new peepers? Thanks.

And Merry Christmas.

    Hey yer not gettin any younger, you should perhaps have a physical and see an eye doctor as well. And …I am being serious. Problems with the eyes can be a signal of other health issues… i.e. more than just the natural aging process.

    Jeez… you did way more cards than I did.

    Post 40 genetic trigger. It happened to my Dad on a night flight. Thankfully it was a full moon… he could hardly see the controls. He said it literally felt like overnight. The next day he went to see the flight surgeon who said, “Ahhh, I see you turned 40 last month, Captain. Genetics…”

    Merry Christmas!

    Be glad somebody invented prescription glasses.

    Merry Christmas!

    Spockgirl is right…problems with the eyes can be a signal of other health issues. Let me guess…growing hair on the palms, too? The nuns were right, dude.
