In the latest installment of “Getting Older Is Bullshit,” I had to get new glasses. I accidentally rolled over my old pair in bed and had to wait two weeks for the new pair to be made.
Longest two weeks ever.
I had to glue the old pair together and got glue on the lens so I couldn’t really see through that lens.
Here’s my problem – my original pair of glasses were for distance but also worked for the computer. My new pair is specifically for computer and also reading (which is now a slight problem).
These new glasses are transitional. I can read great. I can see the monitor perfectly. When I look away, up, or anywhere farther than a few feet, I’m essentially blind.
I think I need a second pair of distance glasses.
I’ll soon be a person with multiple pairs of glasses.
This concludes “Getting Older Is Bullshit.”
**BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE TWEETS AND MEMES! AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!**
My friend Andy from How To Be A Dad has a new book out that I want everyone to support.
Humor is often referred to as the best medicine for many situations, even puns, and this collection of Dad Jokes—guaranteed the most groan-and-forehead-slap-worthy on the market—offers a broad selection of humorous (and often painful) puns and quips.
This book is organized by joke theme, includes 100+ illustrations, and is up to date with current events (“Because of the pandemic, they’re having to televise the World Origami Championship. It’s on paperview.”)
Ok, now tweets and memes.
Oh wow, okay. Securing a Covid vaccination just became the new hunger games.

My son just told me that he LOVES the new toy trucks they got at daycare. They are his toy trucks. We donated them because he refused to play with them.

You came at me like an asshole. You can’t complain when I treat you like you’re full of shit.
