63 (who?)
I lost my glasses.

I thought I left them on the table, but I checked and nothing was there except something sharp. I have terrible vision; everything is so blurry, I can't make out shapes.

I move through the house, feeling around. My wife must be painting the walls. I see dark shapes on them, and they're wet to the touch. It's so quiet it the house...

I step on something wet and squishy. I really wish the kids would not bring the pool toys in the house.

I look in the kids' bedroom and say, "girls, have you seen my glasses?" No response, but I can see a lump under each of their blankets. They must be sleeping.

I check the bathroom, but the lightbulb went out. I feel around, and my hand touches the counter. I hate it when the kids splash water all over the place. It's thicker though... soap?

I go into the bedroom and see my wife standing near the window. Of course I could only see her blurry shape cause of my terrible eyesight. I'm getting old.

"Hunny, have you seen my glasses?" She didn't reply, just stood there. I approached her and touched her shoulder. She shifted slighty.

"Hun?" Her shirt was wet. She must've spilled something on it. "Hun, are you okay?" Still no answer.

I gave her a little nudge, and she shifted away from me, but then came back and bumped into my chest. I felt for her face. She had her mouth open.

"Did you lose your voice?" Her face was wet. I touched at her throat and felt a thick, scratchy choker. She must've gon shopping, but... something didn't feel right.

I reached for her hand and felt her clutching my glasses. It took a little effort to pry them out cause she was holding them so tight, but I got them.

I put on my glasses...

I wish I had never found them.
i'm always misplacing my glasses. for some reason it inspired this.

because this is narrated from a man's point of view? my stories aren't always me as the first person narrator, that's why it's fiction. i'd say the only story that comes close to me being the narrator is "my last ride"
