Attack of the Killer Eyeglasses
My younger sister is encouraging me to get funky looking reading glasses, something pink or green with rhinestones and flowers. "Get something fun," she says to me. "Don't get granny glasses."
My friends tell me to get at least three pairs and scatter them around the house because, I presume, my memory will be the next thing to go. Okay, I can do that. But I will also put one in my purse because there's no way I'm borrowing those ugly pairs that they lend you at restaurants to read menus.
I think I'm going to go with something light with as little frame as possible. I don't want to even feel them on my face which will hopefully help me to forget that I have them. Wishful thinking, I know.
So, I think I'm going to go with something like the one below. What do you think? Too Elvis Costello-y? And if anyone knows how to turn back the hands of time, please share.
