A man who thought he had misplaced his reading spectacles and looked all over his house for them, is celebrating this evening after they subsequently turned up safe and sound - on his head!
Moys Kenwood, 56, spent his evening between playing with his children at hide-and-seek, and reading a book, until the two terrors finally ran out of energy and had to be put to bed at around 9:15pm.
Worn out, himself, Kenwood told his wife he was going to settle down for thirty minutes and read his book.
It was then that the trouble flared. Where were his glasses?
He looked on the table, and on the floor under it; he went into the bedroom to see if he had left them in there; he returned to the bathroom to see if he had taken them off whilst he was taking a pee earlier; he looked in the kitchen, where he had gone for a drink of water; he went to the kids' bedroom to see if he had left them in there after reading them a story and kissing them goodnight.
It was no use, however. The glasses were in none of those places.
Incredulous, he returned to the lounge where his wife was watching some crap drama on TV. He told her about his dilemma, and asked her if she knew their whereabouts.
She stared at him for a few seconds, then narrowed her eyes as if she were scrutinizing something very closely. Then she shook her head, and went back to watching the telly.
Only when he had given up for the night and decided to have a shower did the glasses reveal themselves in the bathroom mirror. They were exactly where I told you they were earlier - atop his balding pate.
Kenwood said later:
"It looks as if they thought we were still playing hide-and-seek!"
