    Oh, I bet I could find a way! I once was on the riding mower in the Georgia midday heat. The gnats were particularly bad that day. I had new glasses in a slightly larger frame. While swatting a path through the gnats, I nicked the new glasses and flung them to the ground right in front of the mower deck. Not a cheap accident.

    Yeah, did that with cheap sunglasses when I wore contacts, but they weren't on the string. I got away cheap that time.

    Under the darkcloth I take off my glasses and hold them by one temple piece in my mouth. One of these day I am going to drop them in a creek or something and have to blindly make my way back to the car. I have no idea how I am going to actually drive, but so far so good.

    Been there. I keep a spare pair in the vehicle when travelling.

    Age 16 I lost my glasses and drove the car at night on busy rural roads by watching and seeing only taillights.

    It was such a strain on my eyes, they shut off after a couple hours. I went blind.

    By then my 'buddies' were sober enough to drive the brand new 1967 Firebird convertible.

    We got home safe.
