$75 down the drain

Literally - last night after the amazing hot dog feast at the Tides Game, I was doing my nightly routine although I added a twist. I managed to pop my contact out and watch it bounce into the drain. Surprisingly, I remained extremely calm saying to myself, "there is no way that just bounced down into the drain?" After thoroughly inspecting all surfaces and pulling the drain out, there is no sign of that little, blue, expensive piece of plastic. I'm not blessed with normal eyes that can wear disposable, inexpensive contacts. Mine cost $75 an eye. At least I was due up in another 6 months anyways, it's just the principle. Joe and I often joke that we would rather flush cash down the toilet than lose something with just as much value - pretty weird philosophy huh? Guess it's a control thing!
