Ladies’ Glasses

I am wearing ladies’ glasses, but they are reading glasses I got off the rack at the dollar store, so, at worst, I am only out $1. (For only $1 each, I have several scattered about the house at opportunistic locations. I got them at different times, so the frames are all different.)

I had broken another pair with wire frames, and I was looking at plastic frames that I thought would be stronger. I passed over many black plastic frames on the rack with rhinestones that were obviously ladies’ glasses. I didn’t want to be mistaken for Deepak Chopra. The pair I selected was of black plastic, but a little lighter than the heavy frames of the others.

Only when I got home, put them on, and looked in the mirror (that I should have done in the store) did I realize they were meant for ladies. (They were pointed at the temples, so not only do I look like a woman, but a hopelessly old-fashioned one.)

I was not going to take them back for only $1. I only wear them in the house. Besides, I was getting used to the look and rather liked them.

I am telling you this in case you see me wearing them and think I am sexually confused.

You have to send a fresh email through your own browser, but you can use my same address. When I can find the time, I think I can fix it, but it is not high priority. Still the bottom line: if you can send it, I will receive it.)

My reasons for writing this blog are spelled out in the posting of 10/1/2012, Montaigne's Essays. They are probably not what you think.
