Just how observant are you?

I have lived in my town for over 50 years.
Today I passed a jewellers shop and the lady sweeping up outside I recognised from the jewellers shop I frequent nearby.
Looking up I noticed the shop was the same name as the one I use.
'Have you moved?' I asked
'No', she replied 'We have 2 shops in town and this one has been here since 1983!!'
I walk past this shop every time I am in town and have never noticed it  :/

So just how observant are you!!

    Not very.  I once hunted all over the house for my glasses, failing to notice I was wearing them.

    There was a lady I used to see at choir practice.  And there was a lady I used to see when she visited her mum in the care home where I worked.  It wasn't until the day I worked late, and went straight to choir practice in my work uniform, that we both realised we knew each other in two different places.  Neither of us had made the connection, and each thought the other was two different people.

    Very.  I notice if my toothbrush has been moved, if the last app used on my phone is different from the last one I used, and so on.

    But why pay attention to things you’re not bothered about?  Jewellery shops wouldn’t register with me either.
  • Not very MP.  During the recent spell of hot weather I got out of bed to turn the fan off during the night. I bent down to turn it off at the plug and banged my forehead on a chest of drawers that’s been there eight years.    It woke me up I can tell you.   I had a red band across my forehead next day.     I wasn’t going to admit what I’d done, but.....

    JOSUSA.  I often try to get glasses on top of glasses that I’m already wearing.   Keys and my glasses are the bain (sp) of my life.

    I've been known to take off my glasses to put in contact lenses, then put my glasses back on.  Doesn't half make your eyes go funny.
  • Now why doesn’t that seem strange to me. 😂
