Glasses in real life

For the first time last week, I worse glasses out to go watch the game with my girl friends. Now to other people this may not be a big deal, but for as long as I can remember being friends with these girls, I don't think I've ever warn glasses out. Ever. And the thought of wearing it out to somewhere other than the grocery store, to a sports bar no less, would never have crossed my mind previously.

These girls have of course seen me in glasses plenty of times. I've had glasses since I've been in grade 8 and each year that I've had them my vision has gotten worse and worse and the glasses have gotten progressively thicker and thicker. For a few years we were all roommates and they had the pleasure of seeing me in glasses around the house or during mornings after particularly rough nights in which the thought of putting back in my contacts seem like pure torture. Basically for the last 10 years of my life, I have never warn glasses outside of my house.
