Do You See What I See ?
My Eyes Can Barely Open
It is too early in the morning
I have to get up and dressed
There are some things that can't wait
I am seeing the reflection
That is way to revealing
Not at all gratifying
In some ways sad
I can't see my eyes
They are all blood shot
Why don't they open wide any more ?
I can't believe the wrinkles I see
My wife says there not just crows feet
There more like a fleet of crows camping out
Maybe as the day goes on they will fade
I have a bare spot where my hair should be
I know a little combing goes a long way
I feel better
Are those nose hairs ?
Where did they come from
They look like little trees
I will brush my teeth
At least I have a good smile
I don't remember missing that tooth in the back
It must of been a couple of years ago when I had a tooth out
No, that was the one on the other side
Oh, I have seen enough just close your mouth and brush
Whats with the hair
Maybe if I wet it it will stay down in back
I don't have much left how could it be out of place
I have hair growing out of my ears now
Come on you got to be joking?
I never seen it before
What is that on my neck
Is that extra skin ?
Where did that come from ?
What am I looking at
Is that a double chin
I never had real bad acne thank God for that
Whats with this scar across my cheek
How did I get that ?
My eyebrows are even out of control
I have a few hairs that look like lobster tennicles
Hold still while I cut that
Careful it would be real stupid to jab myself in the eye
Oh I don't believe it
Are bathroom mirror has a crack in it
Honey can you hear me ?
Are you talking to yourself again ?
What? What is it ?
Is everything alright ?
Are mirror has a crack in it
You never noticed that before
Remember when they put it in
They never put it in right
It was crooked
You tried to move it and make it straight
And it cracked
You said no one would notice it
Was there anything else?
I thought you cut yourself shaving like you always do
No I didn't cut myself shaving
You know we can't be late for your doctors appointment
It is your yearly physical
You forgot last year to go
I tell you I am fine
I am still young and healthy as ever
In your dreams
AHHH I just cut myself
I told you would
Don't worry its only a little cut
I don't know why you have to shave
It is not like your doctor is going to care if you shaved or not
Ever since you got the woman doctor
You act you have to look your best
Did you put your cologne on ?
Just a little bit
Are you wearing this ?
This is your dress shirt
I just grabbed the first shirt I seen
O.k. I am ready
You drop me off at the supermarket
What took you so long in the bathroom ?
Nothing I was just concerned about the mirror
The mirrors fine
I thought your shoulder was bothering you
Nope its fine now
Don't forget to tell the doctor
You had trouble going to the bathroom last week
Nope not me
Thats what they all say
I am a picture of good health
When your doctor says your fine I will believe it then
Don't complain a week from now about aches and pains
I don't want to hear it
I don't complain
You better not
I am only going because you want me to go
You know you are not the same guy I married 10 years ago
I'm cutier than ever
Love ya don't forget to tell the doctor about your toe nail that doesn't grow
The one you dropped the hammer on trying to fix the mirror
Love you too
