You think that's bad, after a 2 year period of blurred focus in my youth when they put a lens in me I screamed and demanded to know what the "holes" in my face were. The pores in my skin were highly magnified. The nurse laughed her head off

When I eventually got back sight after my first operation I was unprepred to see this old guy looking back at me from the mirror. he still inhabits the mirror, and I am wondering when he will go away and let me see myself again. In my head I am around 22, still go fell running, so pretty fit and I have long hair that grows in ringlets.

The guy in the mirror is 57, is overweight, has very little hair and what he has is now silver and has what Matthew describes as folds, in fact he has a surfeit of them!

I asked them if they wore anything under thier kilts and they showed me, front and back not a stitch on :oops: I handled it really well i just stood there and screamed :lol: :oops:
It was a great start to a very good girly weekend.
