Optometry Knocks For Drs. Martini & Rossi

I dreamed that I went to the optometrist - and it was Dean Martin. Only he had an 'i' at the end of his name. And the office looked like a cocktail lounge. And he kept singing. About how the moon hits my eye like a big pizza pie. So probably I need glasses. Dr. Rossi has some, Dean said - what kind of glasses did I want: wine, brandy or, ha ha, martini?

Oh, and you wouldn't believe the wild eye test he gave me!

I would TOTALLY believe it.

Okay fess up. Did you eat some crazy Sandra Lee concoction before bed to bring on this dream?

Didn't their slogan used to be 'Martini and Rossi, so nice!' or something like that??

Carol @SheLives said...

Enough martinis and you too can have double vision!

Bill said...

I'd suggest the rosé tinted glasses.

Tori Lennox said...

Now I have That's Amore stuck in my head....

Heather - It certainly looks like it could happen!

Hairball - I must have done...All I can remember is the commercial about "Martini and Rossi - Asti Spumante!" Or maybe I dreamed that too.

Carol - Well, yes, certainly!

Bill - That is very very good! :)

Tori - Sorry! So do I, if it is any consolation, which it wouldn't be, really, would it? :)

Very funny Lidian! I love Dean. I love martinis! I have glasses! See there?

Flow!!!

Amy said...

lol hilarious, wonder if mr dean martini would bring along his friend mr frank vodka sinatra?

Margo said...

This is hilarious. How do you come up with this stuff every day? My optometrist is very Dean Martini - you'd love him. He loves his glasses jokes.

I got it confused then for a different drink ad campaign that ran here. Cinzano ads are different again in Europe: Georgio!, Georgio!, not georgio, but v. 80s

Tori Lennox said...

Well, it's a good thing I actually like Dean Martin. *g*

Lidian said...

HumorSmith - Then this was a perfect ad for you, wasn't it? And vice versa. :)

Amy - I think Frank gets some of Dean's referrals. He insists! :)

Margo - Well, I love a comical optometrist...I don't always know how I think this stuff up every day. We'll see how I manage today!

Mags - Thanks for the drink-link, I will definitely take a look.

Tori - I find him interesting, and ditto all that Rat Pack stuff, but haven't heard him enough to decide whether I like him. I have seen clips of his show on YouTube and he seems to drink and smoke, mostly. That's some job skills! (I know he sang in between the smoking and drinking, sort of like commercial breaks)

that's a very interesting way to avoid wearing an eye patch after surgery. You can pretend to be mysterious holding up something like that in front of your face.

Lidian said...

VintageGent - The only problem being that your hand gets tired and you have to keep switching...

Your comments were hilarious! She gets points from me on her dress...or blouse...it's very psychedelic and groovy.

Lidian said...

GoRetroGirl - I really like her dress, too.
