So, How does this happen?

Just another reason why I am in a perpetual state of confusion:

Last fall, I was cleaning the lenses on my favorite glasses, when the little silicone pad came off the left nose piece.  This had happened before, and I knew to be more careful, but off it came and it disappeared.  I tore the living room apart on at least two occasions looking for it.  I even vacuumed and then tore through the vacuum cleaner bag, CSI style looking for that nose piece.

All to no avail.

It took me months of internet searching to find a distributer who was willing to mail me a replacement set of nose pads.  They arrived today.

I replaced the pads and am thrilled to have my most comfortable glasses back in rotation.

I think you can probably guess what happened next.

Actually, I predicted it, too.  As I replaced the nose pad, I thought to myself, "now the universe has permission to make it reappear".

Ten minutes ago, Larry came up from downstairs holding something in his palm.  I looked at it, then at him.  "It's my left nose pad.  Where was it"?

He found it at the bottom of the stairs, in the corner, with some other debris.

I lost that damn notepad in October.

There it is, right under the letter "T".  Now I have two sets of replacements.  And if you wear Paulo Philipe glasses, I can tell you where to get replacement parts.
