So yesterday ‘T’ and myself went and had our eyes checked and purchased new glasses,
I elected to get a pair of black wireframe, and a pair of geek chic black plastic, someone should really let calvin klein know that the dot com boom is over, because 250 bucks for two hinges and some molded plastic is insane, or perhaps it’s me that’s insane for paying it.. but I have large eyes and a apple shaped head and most frames look stupid on me, the frames plus my 300+ dollar lenses, the hubble telescope has weaker lenses, put me over 900 bucks for two pairs of glasses. I can’t help but wonder what I would do if I couldn’t afford that [Not that i can, mind you, but really if I couldn’t afford even the lenses, what do people do? Does public assistance pay for optical care? and to what point?
dream sequence coming:
“Mister Rosenbaum, with your optical coverage we can only adjust your vision to 20/75 and only in one eye, So you can forget about that fancy-pants graphics career”
dream sequence concluded …
The absolute worst part of buying glasses is that of course while your trying on the frames you can’t see yourself in the mirror, at least I can’t being nearsighted
So your forced to trust your shopping companion, or you’re at the mercy of the glasses people, and if that’s the case I can only assume you’ll ALWAYS look better in the 250 dollar frames… sigh, I hate spending money, I’m just so darn good at it.
‘T’ bought a really hot pair of librarianesqe ‘cat’ glasses, she usually only wears her glasses at night after her contacts come out, but she looked so very delectable in these frames I wouldn’t mind if she wore them full-time.
