    Vanishing glasses

    OK, saturday morning I got up, too my son to football practice and came home by 0715. I know I had my glasses on then. About 0900 I went out and ran. I know I had my contacts then so the last time I know where they were was 0715. I have searched everywhere. I never lose anything, I am kinda weird about my glasses too. I take them off and put them diretcly in teh glasses case. The only time I take them off without the case is when I get in the shower and set tehm on my nightstand when I go to bed. I cant see very well at all without them. Fortuantely I have contacts. Just drives me nuts when I cant find something.

    My glasses are the only things I don't loose on a regular basis.

    I don't tend to misplace my glasses as they are almost always attached to my face or on the nearest flat surface. House keys, pens and my wallet are a different story.

    I just hate it that you can't see to find them and you can't find them because you can't see.

    That's a trick question. We have no glasses.

    I once woke up and couldn't find my glasses. Had to have a friend come over and look around for me since I couldn't see!

    This thread reminds me of something I thought about recently...

    A surprising number of customers come to the register making all kinds of faces trying to fill out a service ticket with their name and number. Almost all of them complain that, "Oh, I forgot my glasses."

    Q: How the hell did they drive there?
