    I do, actually. Last year I was officially diagnosed with bunch of 'three letters' disorders, and I think they're slowly, but surely taking care of me: I'm misreading texts, I fall into short periods of whatchamacallit, when you stand staring nowhere thinking nothing.... My eye sight getting worse, i have sleeping disorder... I'm thinking of robbing a bank, but something light duty, without crashing the walls and drilling through reinforced concrete, and I'd take just couple of $1M for that, not 60 or 70... What else, oh, yeah, I ordered 2 watch boxes from Amazon for the first time, so I think I'm hmm... kaput?

    I keep dreaming that I bought a watch on ebay.

    The trouble is, a couple of days later the postman knocks on the door............

    There's nothing important to read here.

    Sorry about that. Bear in mind that the eyesight getting worse isn't (probably - I'm no neurosurgeon) anything neurological, and we all (right?!) fantasize about robbing banks and (thereafter) buying loads of watch boxes, sometimes with watches in.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.
