The Art of Losing - Glasses

Do you look blindly for lost items?

Why is it no one can ever find their glasses especially when they’re right in front of them?

In modern culture, look at Velma from Scooby Doo: ‘Glasses, glasses where are my glasses?’ Velma cries.

Isn’t it odd that this small but significant aid to one of our most relied-upon senses can be so carelessly lost, then found, day after day after day?

Last week I attempted to look for mine unaware that a pair sat on my head! And however many people suggest a sensible solution: I refuse to buy a string and hang my glasses around my neck! In my eyes that would be admitting defeat.
