Tick tock



My sports watch gave out the other day, so Sherry and I went shopping for a new one. As I looked them over, she wandered away to check out the jewelry. It took me about five minutes, but I finally found the perfect watch.

"Why did you pick that one?" Sherry asked. I replied, "Because the display had the biggest numbers."

You ever notice how they're making print a lot smaller now to save on ink?

Oh, I hear you on this. I think I need to go for my eye exam pronto. Oh, and it never struck me as amusing until I read the title of your post, but my optometrist's name is Doctor Tock.

When I stand in the backyard and look at stars, they look like the sun as drawn by kindergartners, with those skinny V-shaped rays surrounding them. They're no longer distinct points of light. Part of me says to deal with it because it's part of the aging process. The other part says it sucks.
