Had something amusing, though annoying too, happen yesterday. I
broke my glasses frame last week and the new ones aren't ready yet, so
I'm walking around like a dork with tape holding them together.
Last night, as I was leaving work, I managed to drop one of the
lenses out of the frame in the car lift at work. Down it went through
the grill and onto the (inaccessible) concrete floor about 50cm down.
I was ready to give up until I suddenly thought maybe I could get
them back. Handy tape to the rescue again: I went back up to the
office, got some tape and went back downstairs. Using a piece of
metal with a blob of exposed tape on the end to poke through the grate
and lift the lens. Took me a few attempts, and I got a nasty scratch
across the lens, but it worked!
Now I just hope the new glasses arrive soon and I can stop looking
like a dork.
