-- just in time for Easter.
I'd put the following status up on my facebook page about an hour ago:
"Karen is wearing a BIRTH CONTROL DEVICE. Relax. Reading Glasses*. I could KILL all those eye docs from age 11 to 53 who NEVER mentioned "oh, for reading get a pair of +1.5 Off the Shelf reading glasses - you, being the nearsighted bat you are, your contacts are made so you can see far and not run into traffic so the rest of us are spared." Bassids. I can see the computer screen like a fricken EAGLE now."
Then I added the comment: "It's true, guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses. Which is why I gave them up at 17."
Within an hour, I was proven wrong.
Some nice looking guy came up and asked if he could borrow my reading glasses so he could read an official "gubbmit doc" he'd got.
"Hi, could I borrow your reading glasses. I can't read this." He puts them on and says "How do I look?"
Me: "A lot better than I probably do in them!"
He turns to me and says: "Hey, you're not so bad looking yourself!" We both laugh. He asks me to open the envelope for him as he has too short nails (no non-paraplegic male can't open up a letter.) He introduced himself as "Joel" and proffered his hand to shake, then says: "Hey, warm hands too"
Me: "They oughta be...they've been in my pocket!"
Sheesh, maybe if I'da kept the goggles I'd have 20 grandkids by now....always a bridesmaid, never a bride!
