I had to walk through the middle of this drinks and hors d'ouevres thing going on today in the middle of a public space downtown. Most people looked pretty normal, but one woman startled me. She was probably in her early thirties, but it was hard to tell because all I could see was her glasses. Because she looked like this:
She was wearing seriously huge Angela Bower glasses. It was like a really bad costume. I don't get the whole dressing ironically thing (at least I hope that's what she was doing). She just looked like a fool.
But anyway, I went to the eye doctor today. I am going back to contacts for most days, but I need to get new glasses too because my old prescription is just not cutting it. I already got contacts with the correct prescription, and it is scary how much better I can see now. Also, I learned that I do not have very good depth perception. Which explains why I am always running into door jambs. And is also a new good excuse for why I am bad at sports. I'm not slow and uncoordinated; I just have bad depth perception! Yes, that is what I tell myself.
So my new eye doctor is super cool, and I love him in a non-romantic eye doctor kind of way. When I was checking out frames, I mentioned that I would like to have H and a friend or two see how I look in them because I am not a good judge of these things, so the glasses-selling lady said, "Let's pick out a few that look the best on you, and you can take them home with you to try out. Just bring them back when you come in to pick up your contacts." Dude! I get to test drive my glasses! So here they are. Which pair do you prefer?
