if you have to wear glasses, you might as well have a bit of fun with them.  this is what esme decided when she went to check out the frames at INSIGHT EYEWEAR the other day.  trying on glasses is kind of a kick.  it’s the deciding on one pair that’s hard.  if only i could be like the woman who owns the place—she claims to have hundreds of glasses.  i probably tried on 20 or so.  you can imagine yourself as a different person with each one.  and there are so many issues to consider:  fit, flattery, color, shape, and image.  image is the funnest part if you ask me.  some of the ones i liked best were pronounced by the guy at the store to give the impression that “you’re trying too hard.”  i rather like to attract a bit of attention, and that didn’t bother me a bit.  finally i narrowed it down to about 6 pairs, with a plan to drag mr. noir in to help with the final decision.

amazingly enough our tastes overlapped.  he did pick out an additional pair that was nice but too conservative i thought.  and we both liked the “trying too hard” ones–imagine that!

enjoying my specs,
