Here lately (fast approaching 62) <snip>
I just dropped by to post, and this thread popped up. So, I
thought I'd see what you old guys were up to. Then I read this. Damn,
I'm 64, and I don't even consider myself middle-aged yet, let alone old.
You must be spending too much time thinking about it. Just ignore it,
it won't go away, but it won't bother you. That's what I do. But, if
you're having problems keeping track of your glasses, don't let 'em go
when you take 'em off. Hold 'em with your little finger, put 'em in
your shirt pocket, slide 'em in the gap between two buttons of your
shirt, or in the neck of your shirt. Then no prob. Or you could
choose the sissy route, and get one of those thingies that hook on your
glasses frame and loop behind your neck. I use a magnifrying (sic)
glass, or loupe, at times.
A highbrow is a person educated beyond his intelligence.
