How to tell when you need glasses


The girls and I headed over to the library on Thursday evening. Rachel needed a book for a book report due next week, and Leah and I had finished reading all our library books. I was in the children's section helping Rachel pick out a French book for her report and ended up standing next to the revolving rack that holds the VHS tapes and DVDs.

I glanced over at the rack and noticed two Law and Order tapes on the rack -- with the unmistakeable picture of Jerry Orbach on both spines.


Hmmm, those seem to be shelved in the wrong place, I thought to myself. I better take them to the front desk and get them put back in the adult section. Or maybe I'lll check them out. I like the old Law and Order shows best, the ones with Jerry Orbach and Chris Noth before he became Mr. Big on Sex and the City. I picked the first one up and turned it over to see which episodes were on it. This is what I saw when I squinted at it:


I'll be making an appointment with the optometrist on Monday.

  1. Priceless. I loved Jerry Orbach. He did some reading for us at the audio publisher I worked for and he was really good.

  7. They've both got that creepy factor that you can't quite place your finger on -- like you wouldn't want to be trapped with either one of them in an elevator or a dinner party conversation...
