If you were wondering if you get smarter with age, no you do not. You just become more stubborn.
After breaking glass item number 3 in the bathroom I started cleaning up the glass with no shoes. Can you see where this is going? Glass right in the foot. So I sit on the toilet and dig the glass out with tweezers. I hobble out of the bathroom to find a band-aid leaving a trail of blood. The cats are trying to get into the bathroom where the broken glass is.
I sweep, I mop I take a lint roller and start rolling it on the floor to pick up microscopic bits of glass. Derek comes into the bedroom and tells me there's still bits of glass. I give up and I am just going to wear shoes all the time. I'll make kitten mittens for the cats and call it a day.
