    With me it's reading glasses and sunglasses that have their very own optical black hole. I just went and bought about a dozen new reading glasses at CVS and I put one in each room, one in my purse, one by my computer, etc. I think it's when you start transporting things from one spot to another that they make their escape.

    This is my mom!

    My entire house is a black hole. There are just piles of stuff everywhere. But don't try to move any of it! "I knew exactly where that important document was until you cleared my crap off the kitchen counter @#$%^$%!!"

    Well, it would appear that the Black Hole really needs my measuring tape. It's given me a cheque for 80 and a return bus ticket to the airport in its place

    The worst part is when you realise that the black hole for glasses is on top of your head...

I can blame some on the kids - like cosmetics, hair pins, etc, but occasionally there are also computer spare parts, boxes, cups, jackets, bags, empty beer bottles, and such. Can't blame the dogs, right?

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Been there!! My kids think it is hilarious that I need another pair of glasses in order to find the bifocals I misplaced.

    There was a Ziggy cartoon about a hundred years ago: Ziggy is asleep in bed, there's a spaceship on the windowsill, and two aliens are standing over his sock drawer holding up pairs of socks. The caption is "I have no idea what these things are, lets take one of each to make sure."

    Oh, you started so promissingly and then its just jeans... Hoped at least for a revelation that he wears your lingerie and lace top socks.

    There was that time after I'd lost a lot of weight when my boyfriend got dressed to go out and started complaining that his pockets had something wrong with them. There weren't holes in them, they were gone.

    What can possibly happen to pockets? Where can they go?

    I finally looked, and saw that he was wearing a pair of my jeans, the ones with the ornamental pockets in the front. LOL. Yeah, they fit a little funny, too.
