Eye See You
"Honey, have you seen my eyeglasses?" yelled my husband from another room. I sighed. This was not the first time he had lost his glasses, and I knew from past experience that the hunt could take a few minutes or a few days, depending on the blendability of the glasses-to-background ratio.
"Where do you last remember seeing them?" I asked him.
"If I could see them, I wouldn't need your help finding them," he said.
"That's not what I meant," I replied. "I meant, when do you last remember wearing them?"
"You've been missing them since yesterday?" I wondered.
"No. But that's the last time I remember wearing them."
"OK, let's try again," I said. "Where were you the last time you were wearing your glasses?"
"If I knew that, I could find the glasses!"
It used to be that his shoes were the only things that went missing. But those were usually easy to find. They are big and black and were typically under the kitchen table, by the front door or in the dog's mouth. But the glasses are another story. When he found out that he needed glasses a few months ago, he decided to get the frameless variety, aka invisible glasses. They looked great on him, but the problem with invisible glasses is when you take them off, they are invisible. This makes it nearly impossible to find them unless you have an eyeglasses GPS, or a specially trained glasses-sniffing dog, or a psychic wife.
