    I never spend much on sunglass. Got a prescription pair of oakleys just before going to Hawaii. They still live in paradise somewhere.

    Not my original story, but speaking of losing IDs. I was about to leave for australia on study abroad in about 2-3 days. I was playing racquetball and someone stole my pants out of the locker at state gym. After trying to expedite getting what I needed back (had my passport), someone called and found the contents of my wallet strewn around 5 blocks of campus avenue. They also made a $1000 donation to unicef in my name (nice).

    My team captain pins from senior year. Lost them the day I got them. Suspect a jealous friend actually took them then pretended to help me look for them in the grass.

    They will be in the last place you look for them. So just look there. If they're not there then it really wasn't the last place....

    I lost my wedding ring while almost getting hit by a car on my bicycle.

    It was in winter time, and I was riding across at night. I didn't have lights on the bike then, so it was a little stupid, but I live in a small town that is well lit, so I wasn't that worried.

    The street I was on had right-of-way, and a car approached that was required to stop. The car clearly didn't see me and straight up ran a stop sign. I locked up my bike, went flying over the handle bars onto the snow packed street, and got up. I took my gloves off and started patting myself down and inspecting my legs to see if I was bleeding or anything. I put my gloves back on, and continued to my destination.

    About 20 minutes after I got where I was going, I realized my wedding ring was gone. It had to have been pulled off when I took my gloves off. I went back to the spot of the accident, but never found it.

    Did the driver stop to see if you were okay?

    I don't think they even realized I was there. They didn't hit me, I just wiped out avoiding the accident.
