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.

But a few months ago, I dragged along the other half to go glasses shopping with me. He is not known for style, in fact him and style shouldn't even be in the same sentence. But I figured since he'll be the one looking at me with glasses since we live together, at least he can tell me if the glasses make me look hot. Easy task? I think I tried on like 40 pairs before we settled on the 3rd or 4th one that I had tried in my search.

So I love the new glasses. They are black and slightly nerdy looking without being overly librarian if there can be such a thing with black slightly nerdy looking glasses. But I haven't shared the glasses look without anyone else but the other half until last week Thursday.

For the first time I wore out the glasses to a place where other people would actually see me, crazy right? But I did it. And I got compliments on the new glasses! Thanks to the girls who made me feel special and really great about trying this out. Maybe we'll see a re-appearance of the glasses in future ventures out in the city.
