Lol! Cute situational humor, Yvette! I could so see that happening but I would know right away if I had my husband's glasses as he can see a lot better than me! Best wishes in the contest!

    You know, I got the crazy idea when two of my students showed up with new glasses (different classes/grade levels) with the same glasses! :) ;) Probably won't happen to David and I cuz mine are prescription and his are 'readers' from the store...can't see me ever mistaking those frames for mine LOL! ;) But who knows?!! :) Didn't have my usual time this week for 'thinking up stuff' since I'm barely keeping all the balls in the air, but it works!! ;) :) Take care, Professor! :) ;) Yvette

This is fun and reminded me of my life. I am sorry to say has happened more than once. I love this short and fun Dribble Flash Fiction! Sugar sweet photo, too. A fine entry for the upcoming contest, Yvette.

I'm sorry I have no more 6's to give. What a charming story, and it feels somplete! I tried the dribble flash fiction contest for the first time, and it just left me frustrated. I'm glad I read this. I learned a lot about using a microscope on the little moments in life. Very well done!

    A microscope on life is about all there's time for on a Dribble, Carla, yeah?!! I always end up going through and cutting here and re-wording there just to make it fifty....challenge is usually having it still convey the meaning I started with!! ;) :) LOL! :) Thanx so much for your wonderful comments -- they mean the world, ma'am! ;);) Yvette

So true to life! You have captured a range of emotions in this. Her distress, his frustration, their shared laughter and her relief. Quite a feat in so few words.

This work has reached the exceptional level

She was so glad it was only a mix up of glasses she thought for a moment she had really lost her vision going I as she gets older. A reprieve for now is what she was needing.

What a precious pair in the photo. I bet losing or switching glasses happens to a lot of us. I once picked up my son's glasses and put them in my purse, thinking they were mine until I put them on. Yikes! Delightful story.

HAHAHAHA -- now THIS is a cute story, and I bet it happens too. I know I have two pair so I can use one to find the other pair. LOL. I still have a landline for the same reason -- so I can find my cell phone. Good luck.

Oh my goodness, Yvette!
This is way too close to home! My eyesight is abysmal. I have to keep glasses in various places in order to find the glasses I want to wear! GAWD! And once, I put two contact lens in the same eye! Yup!
Very well-written flash. Realistic and charming!

Best Wishes!
P.S.
I purchased roses and geraniums today = there is hope! :)
