I had an important meeting this week in Kouklia - of course as always the professional !!!! - but being of the senior generation, - somewhat forgetful also!!
So there I was, fumbling in my handbag for spectacles, to read and discuss a document - no luck!!!
I believed that the feeling of some pressure on my head was caused by my SUNGLASSES ONLY- as usual in this sunny climate , so abandoned the search and held the document some two feet away, squinted and tried to focus! - got by - just.
So I realised on return to my car, on reaching to slide down my sunglasses that I was in fact also wearing , not one but TWO !!! pairs of reading glasses !
I can only imagine that the person I was meeting with was too respectful and polite to point this out - akin to cabbage on the teeth, or the moment when you ' squeak' on a chair and it sounds like you've passed wind!
Note to self - when I am looking for sight - check the top of the head first !
