Since getting these new glasses, he hasn't taken them off or swung them around or lost them or sat on them...

Sitting on them has been a lifetime favorate. I set them down on the couch and grab something to drink, then I plop back down on the couch and wonder where they went.

When I was young I lost some glasses to the sea. This was late 70s, so they were much like the HP glasses. One time stands out, I ran down to the shore line to play in the ocean. Mum called for me shouting "You have your glasses on" I turned and asked her to clarify what she had said, but at that moment a shore break wave reared up and broke on my head. When I stood up, I was not wearing my glasses.

I lost a bunch by diving into the ocean not realizing I was wearing my glasses till they slipped off my face.

Its almost impossible to find them once they are gone
