Found Them!
my lost glasses, back in my loving embrace... sort of

After returning from errands last night, I realized that I couldn't find my glasses. I knew I'd put them in my coat pocket when leaving the gym, but in between had been all over the city on scooter, foot, and bicycle.

I figured that I'd probably lost them on the 2km walk to a bicycle shop (to pick up a new bicycle), or on the bumpy 2km ride home. It was warm enough that I'd slung my jacket over my shoulder for most of the way there.

I spent an hour in the dark drizzle last night with a flashlight retracing my steps. I didn't find them, but did learn that it's hard to see in the dark, and rain is wet. I was bummed.

This morning I tried again in the light, and found them flatter than a pancake on the Sanjo Ohashi bridge (this bridge), and the weird thing is that I immediately felt better about the whole thing.

I think the psychological aspect is interesting... I felt much worse about not knowing than about the loss of the glasses.

” I didn’t find them, but did learn that it’s hard to see in the dark…”

Yeah. Especially without glasses.
