First picture with glasses



I have had bad eye sight since I was in second grade. At the time I was told that it was from me wearing my parents' glasses around the house when I was little. They had to say it was my falt. I remember whenever I first got glasses I thought they were cool. Maybe it was because they were different, or maybe it was because I was a dork. I don't know, I felt the same way about braces... Until I wore them for three years.

By the time I was in middle school I figured out that they were not the most attractive things to have on your face. I despised them. I know that it was also the frizy blond hair, braces and a thick east Texas accent that hurt me as well. I eventually got rid of all three, starting with the glasses. I didn't care what I had to do, I was going to wear contacts. I wore contacts even when I had alergies against them. That eventually went away. Then I lost the braces, dyed my hair and picked up the west Texas accent (which I am told isn't really that noticeable). Well, it didn't matter much by that point anyway because I went on to private school where there were only 50 students in the entire school anyway. No worries about being cool there.

These glasses I have on now (and in the picture), were the first ones I ever bought to wear in public since I was in middle school. Maybe I've outgrown that fear of looking uncool with glasses by now. I just notice that sometimes I am still hesitant of wearing them in front of people. For instance, there are a couple of pictures on this blog where I took off my glasses before snapping the picture. My excuse, I like my eyes and I think they look better without these frames in front of my face.

I thought I'd at least put up one picture where I am wearing these things. I know they aren't that bad. Arthur likes the way I look in them. I guess that is all that really matters. But now I am going to have to go back to the bathroom and put my contacts in. I can't stand wearing these things any longer today.

Glasses are strange supplements to one’s attire. They are—hopefully—functional, although I know a woman who wears glasses simply because she thinks wearing them makes her look more intelligent. They can add something to a face, just as my beard does. You look first-class with or without the glasses, so you have a choice.
