That did NOT just happen

Oh my f-ing god. I was feeling lightheaded, wobbled over the bathroom, started to pass out toward the toilet, and - I cannot believe this - my fabulous little black eyeglasses fell off my head, into the can, and reaching out to steady myself, I flushed the goddamn glasses down the john.

RIP, fabulous little black eyeglasses.

Damn you, damn you, foul evil stomach bug!

My driving glasses are in the car. I'm now wearing some vintage giant owl-eye glasses I dug out of my crafty girl art box.

Jeezus.

As I just wrote to a friend, is there a prize for "Worst Freaking Year Ever"?

My coworkers are right, I just need to travel around in a giant bubble.

Am I going to hell cuz I laughed when I read this? Does it matter that I then had to read it to my partner and we both laughed at it? And then, when I just re-read it, I laughed again? Laughing once is human, 3 times is evil. Yep, this just tipped me over the edge – my new zip code will be 666
That said sorry you're so sick and that you lost your cute little glasses. Hope you’re feeling better now. On the bright side – only a little more than a week left to this Horrible Year.

That's just terrible. As well as terribly, terribly funny...

And the hits just keep on coming.

At this stage, you have to do a year in review because you can't make this stuff up. I suppose I'm evil, too, because I laughed at first.

I'm so sorry this happened to you! RIP fabulous little black glasses! And continued wishes for an uneventful and boring 2007.

I'm sorry about the glasses, of course, and also praying I don't get this stomach bug. As for worst year ever? I dunno, but certainly the nastiest I've gone through in a few. I'll be glad when it's over. 2006 did zip for me.

That sucks! My glasses once fell in the loo (just water there at that stage, thank goodness!), but I managed to recover them with a stick and not accidentally flush them. Oh, and I did disinfect them before I touched them with my bare fingers!

I hope you get better fast. Stomach bugs are the worst, especially when glasses are involved.

Only 13 days left to go in this your ultimate annus horriblus.

You know, that is so totally unfair.

I'd loan you my fabulous little copper eyeglasses, but then I couldn't see, and we can't have that.

I hope your holidays go smoothly after this.

Damn, what is it these days, that life seems to be adding insult to injury as it were? Such a sad fate for such lovely glasses.

I'm not too surprised that it is somewhat giggle-inducing, even so. I remember when I was in grad school, I leaned over to flush without having fully fastened my pants yet - and the keys to my university office dropped out of my pocket right at that point and down they went. Of course, this was one of those powerful institutional toilets with the Niagara flush, so those puppies were GONE, no question. I then had to go running to the department secretary, crying out in dismay - "Wanda!!! I just flushed the keys to my office down the toilet!!"

Despite the fact that I had just made more work for her, she laughed her butt off.

Okay you are one of the few people out there that can say you did this !!! I did it when I was 14 years old( omg like 20 yrs ago eeek) I was on vacation in Chicago with my parents and somehow I broke the one arm off them and so when I went to pee at like 2 in the morning they popped off and into the toliet as soon as i flushed.
