Was a time when, if I dropped something I'd just pick it up. Now I stare at it while I decide if I

really need it anymore!

4. Question here

The reason you dropped an item is because you do not have finge prints any more.

Did you know that? I didn’t until a Teacher friend said they had to use lotion to fingerprint her for school. That is why you are dropping things. No grip, same problem here, but pick it up, may be the only exercise you get today!

8. The Teacher I was referring to is probably

In her 70’s. But we were discussing this in the Optometrists office. A Technician stopped and told us her kids were telling her she had no fingerprints. She was at the most 40. She showed us.

11. I always pick up pennies (and other loose change) A quart jar of pennies

is approximately $18.00, so it's well worth it.
