I had a voucher for a free pair of glasses, only the voucher only covered the most basic plastic lens. Considering I am twice legally blind without corrective eye wear, basic plastic lenses in my prescription are comically thick. Not to be one to pass up on free glasses I decided to not only get the basic plastic lens of ridiculous thickness, I also decided to find the most ridiculous frame possible to encase the comically large pieces of plastic.
I picked the most outrageous pair of glasses I could find on purpose. They are giant, round, plastic and purple with silver hearts at the temples.
That way if anyone were to be puzzled by my choice (which there have been many) they would have to wonder “I’m sure she’s aware of how silly those glasses are because she’s wearing them out in public.”
I wear silly glasses on purpose.
And you know what?
They are the most comfortable well working pair of glasses I have ever owned and I love them.
