I've been told that, with my glasses on, I resemble Velma. You know, Scooby-Doo? Well hell, I've got to see, and without my glasses I'm...wearing contacts! But without those I'm pretty much useless in the vision department.

So it should come as no surprise that I have to place my specs just so on my bedside table, so they can be snatched and jammed on to my face lest one of the younglings is awake with dreams of Chewbacca sitting on their back. (I refer to Daughter...)

Anyway, last night I crawled into bed and somehow knocked my glasses on the floor. I'd thought of just leaving them there, but then my ever practical (and overly anal) mind thought "what if Daughter wakes up?" so I was reduced to pawing around in the dark to find my other two eyes.

It then struck me that, damn! I am just like Velma!

"My glasses! I can't find my glasses!"

Jinkies!! I'd better go get those knee socks and turtleneck sweater to complete the look.

You could have left your glasses there if it weren't for those meddlin' kids!

At my eye doctor they have these cool eyeglasses holders which are balsa wood carvings. Some are in the shape of animals and some are represent differnet occupations such as firefighter, policeman, etc. You put the glasses on their noses and there's a space to put the arms of the glasses as if they were folded in a case.

Sounds like you could use something like that. I got my mom the cat one and she absolutely loves it. With today's lightweight lenses and nearly invisible frames, it becomes a Catch-22 to find missing eyeglasses!

I totally understand. I'm horribly nearsighted (around -18.0) and some of the most frustrating and frightening times have been when my glasses were lost or taken from me. One time I lost them when I was alone and away from home and I probably spent an hour on my hands and knees groping for my glasses before I finally found them. Talk about feeling scared and helpless...there was no way I could have found my way home without them, especially in the dark since that happened at night.
