White House Press Secretary Jay Carney loses glasses

Reporters noticed something different about White House Press Secretary Jay Carney at today's press briefing: Carney was wearing a different pair of glasses.

"I am so mad about this, but I lost my glasses," said Carney at the White House press briefing Monday and posted on CBS News Online.

When asked to explain what happened to them, he said, "I was buying my son a bike for his birthday and I think when I was taking it off the bike rack at home and I had my sunglasses on and I had the other ones on and I think I put them on the bumper and then drove off," said Carney.

Carney’s explanation drew chuckles from the press corps. A reporter then asked if he was "blaming his son" for the incident.

Carney joked that he took full responsibility for the "regrettable action."
