When you've been married for nearly thirty years, some things are a little different than when you're a newlywed. At forty-nine, I now have issues I never dreamed would happen. I had to purchase this sleep mask this week, so the light from my husband's reading lamp wouldn't keep me awake. Since my eye surgeries, I'm seriously light-sensitive. Even with my eyes closed, light hitting our bedroom wall from traffic outside our window jolts me awake.
So instead of a come-hither look when I crawl into bed at night, I slip on my hand braces for carpal tunnel, mouth guard for teeth-grinding, and now...my leopard print sleep mask. And believe it or not, this was the most sedate mask I could find! I couldn't bring myself to get the one that made me look like a hoot-owl.
That might have just sent my husband over the edge.
