I bought a new pair of glasses for the trip --- y'know, glasses I can actually appear in publicly, without feeling like I look like a total dork. I haven't really had a pair of glasses that wasn't for wear-at-home use in quite a few years.
Fortunately, Little Miss Drinkalot was on hand last week to play fashion consultant, as I tried something like 40 different pairs of spectacle frames. The shop assistant serving me got bonus points for her everlasting patience and energy, as she whipped out pair after pair for my evaluation.
I was tempted to get a pair of red-framed glasses too, but they were $300 for the frame alone. Crazy lah!
The other good news is that my prescription has gone down by 50 degrees for both eyes. Hurrah!
