Recently, the screw on the right side of my glasses has been coming loose. Luckily, I keep a small jeweller's screwdriver handy for just such eventualities. Today, though, after my noontime flick and lunch, I was just logging into CoH when I thought to clean my glasses. Imagine my annoyance when the screw pops completely out of the frames and promptly disappears.

Now, that's bad enough. Crawling around on the floor for an hour, looking for a tiny, tiny screw, without my glasses, is just no fun. Then of course, we have the hilarity of trying to find something in the house, wire-wise, I can use to temporarily fix things, and the bending of the frames while I try to make THAT work. At some point, I lamented the fact that I had kept my old glasses for all this time, and tossed them only this week...then remembering I hadn't taken the garbage out, so there was the dig through the bin to find them. Success there, but then we have to get a screw out of them and into the new glasses, only to discover that it is just a HAIR too large. Still, I got it in place enough to hold things together, and once Dianna got home, made a trip to the eyeglass place and had it fixed properly.

Major pain in the ass for such a small tribulation.
