This-n-That Thursday

This week's new annoyances symptoms of my advancing years:
  • Cannot see the buttons on the phone
  • Cannot hear anything except screaming children in restaurants
  • Raging dyslexia
  • Overnight eyelash loss
  • A need to talk to the people on television
  • A need to talk to myself
  • Overnight goatee
  • A need to scream at the lead story on the news at 6
  • Everything itches
  • Everything is especially itchy between 2 and 5 AM
I wonder what next week will bring....What's itching you?

Hate the screaming children in restaurents, especially in adult restaurants at 8 o'clock at night. Yesterday I asked to be moved to another table because of one such adorable child. I was rubbing my eyes this morning and almost freaked out because I thought I didn't have any eyelashes left. And what up with the goatee? Thank goodness stringing takes care of it for upwards of three weeks!

I have seen you scream at the people on tv!

But you so do NOT have a goatee!

Some how, I can imagine you screaming at people on tv.

What's itching me...you don't want to know. Recently, I had a case of hives it was so bad...but it's resolving.

I've been blowing my nose for almost two weeks. It quit being voice after about half a day. I've lost track of how many boxes of Kleenex I've gone through.

Tammy said...

Gah! I've been itchy too, but I thought it was from the freezing weather, maybe I was wrong and it's old age. Gah!

Nurse Nancy said...

I hear you.....unless the children are screaming too loud.

Itching all over and so is every kid in school....eczema is all the rage.

TSannie said...

Sure beats the alternative! Just sayin'.

Everything is itching me, especially after trying to put up a humongous artificial tree.

Also, I forgot to shave my half-moustache and my one black, course cheek hair before going to WAl-Mutant, Food Lion and talking to the game warden this morning. I hope they enjoyed the laugh.

Can't see buttons on any mobile or remote devices. I'm so tired of trying to push the fast forward button on my DVD remote, but I hit the search mode instead and the move frame leaps 10 minutes ahead.

One of these days, the makers of these little black contraptions are going to realize that we boomers are now old, and a very large cohort who will demand to be catered to.

Yes, screaming children....I'm just glad to enjoy a relatively healthy pain-free elder-hood


Aloha, Friend!

I talk to the people on TV all the time, I yelled at Senator McCain several times this past week.

I hate children. In restaurants. In movie theatres. Anywhere they dont behave

My scalp itches every time I yell at the TV ... maybe there's a link?

And you do not have a goatee .. I however plucked a GIANT hair from my chin on Monday morning that had to have been there on Sunday and not one of you saw it?????

I'll tell ya what's itching me today. Those three bratty kids that were in line behind me at the post office today, that's what. O. M. G. They were definitely the poster children for birth control.

Kathryn said...

Wow! I must be your twin sister. We must have been separated at birth. I ended up Canadian, eh?
I can't even wink at my husband anymore lest the eyelashes fly off into the sunset. I'm itching too.
Screaming kids? Hate 'em, hate their parents. If I were still a girl guide I'd be getting my curmudgeon (sp) badge!

Just about all of the above.

Nancy said...

LOL! You are I are sooo much alike! Especially the itchy thing...

My sweet kitty cat wanting out at 330 am. And then wants back in 20 minutes later just as I am drifting back off to sleep. I will not even tell you the rash I get from that. It aint pretty.

I have always answered people on TV and haven't seen the buttons on my phone in years. Yes, somehow, the overnight goatee has alluded me :)

Maria said...

Hahaahahah. Goatee but no eyelashes. Me too. What's up with that?
