It has dawned on me that men of a certain age should start bringing their reading glasses to the men’s room.
That’s because more and more establishments are posting reading material at eye level above the urinals. And more and more men of a certain age need reading glasses.
This can be frustrating, because whether you’re interested in the reading material or not, it’s inches from your face, and you’re a captive audience. You have to stand there for a certain amount of time. Moving closer won’t help, and moving back can be messy.
You can’t focus on what’s in front of your face, so all you can do is focus on the task at hand, then move on. It’s not as if you’re going to get your glasses and go back to read what you missed. And you know you won’t remember to bring them next time, either. The bane of men of a certain age.
So. What’s going on in the ladies’ room?
