I wear monthly contact lenses which means at the end of every month I take one pair out and put another pair in. So this morning as I was putting in my new pair it suddenly occured to me that this particular pair of contact lenses was going to help me see everything clearly over the next month including my family (who I don’t see very often), my friends (in all sorts of interesting social events in the coming weeks), a trip to see a comedian, a trip to Stratford, countless shopping expeditions and recipe books, numerous Christmas decorations (some glitzy, some gaudy), some good Christmas TV (not sure this is possible) and HP’s face when he opens his pressies! All these memories will be stored in my long term memory and the clarity of the events will be greatly enhanced by a pair of contact lenses, only for that insignificant piece of plastic to be discarded in the New Year, it’s weird when you really think about it.
On another tack, HP started his ‘pinch & punch for the 1st of the month, no returns’ this morning and when I tweaked his nose back he was aghast because I’d gone against the laws of gobblydy gook and no returns – just confirms my personal view that protective mysticism of any type is a pile of crap!
