I wear contact lenses almost all the time--I prefer them to my glasses for various reasons. But this week I've spent a few days in glasses thanks to a stye on my eyelid. I've never had one before, and apparently they're kind of like eyelid pimples. (I just crossed into the realm of too much information, didn't I?)
Anyway--I'm glad that I do have glasses I like, so I'm okay with wearing them every so often.
And I've realized glasses do offer me certain benefits. What better way to look like a thoughtful intellectual?
And if I want, I can rip them off like the sexy secretary in the movies.
(I know, I know..."eyelid pimple" sorta nullifies the whole "sexy" concept.)
And I think glasses can also lend an air of severity, useful when Mean Mommy needs to step in.
As I write this on Wednesday, my eye is mostly better, so I'll be retiring my glasses again soon. But they'll certainly be useful again. I was wearing them several months ago when a friend told me I look scholarly. "My scholarly look is remarkably similar to my allergy-eyes look," I informed him.
Yep, whether I want to look smart or just want to combat red eye, sometimes having four eyes comes in handy.
