Spectaculario Redux

I'm getting tired of people asking me if I am crying in my office. I'm not. It's just the combination of many hours spent staring at the computer screen + contact lenses. Hence, I got myself some new glasses. My old glasses were almost ten years old and didn't work so well. These are really light. I wanted to get some just like the old pair, but the lady at the store wouldn't let me. So here you go. My new glasses on a pleasantly warm, yet damp, Akron morning. This is my "I am smart" face. I thought it would be appropriate.

Great photo! Your glasses look like my glasses (and they are fabulous on you), though your smart face looks better than my smart face which just looks curious.

Thanks so much, Kelli!

My students LOVE your book, btw. I don't think there's a single student who didn't absolutely adore it, which is totally rare. We are all in awe!

Oh, thanks for saying that! You have officially made my day.

Mary: The same thing happened to me. After about ten years, i couldn't wear contacts anymore because all they did was make my eyes water, or make me look like I was wincing in pain. So I switched to glasses, and have been quite happy (except when they fell off on a roller coaster the other day).

Best of luck: I love the new glasses.

Yet another great pic!

Nice glasses, too. The frames are the perfect color for your hair.

I like to wear glasses.

Can I have your old frames?

I like the look. I wore contacts for about a month in high school, but they made my eyes constantly itchy and bloodshot and watery. Other than that, they were great.
