Although I have not had this entire combination of events happen
simultaneously, I've had several of them occur at once. I'm quite blind
without my glasses, and do take them off for close-up work, then can't find
them either because of CRS or ADD - the two go hand in hand. That also
accounts for MANY trips up and down the stairs to get all the tools, parts,
etc. I forgot.

That I haven't experienced yet. I'm sure it's just a matter of time with my
old BMW with 212k miles.

I'm not that bad, but my 22 year old girlfriend is. Drives me crazy!

I rarely get hangovers, but anything more than one beer gets me loopy. And
when I do get hangovers, they're nasty!

Being a long haired hippie freak, I don't have that problem yet...

No kids, so no problem. :)
