Ah, glasses. Whether you are far-sighted, short-sighted, or something else, one thing unites all us blind-ass people: glasses (or contacts, but they're not as fun, as the following facts will show you.)
Here are 12 things we've all gone through because of our fabulous spectacles.
1. The fog nightmare
Ah, winter. Such a beautiful season. Snowflakes, hot cocoa in front of the fireplace, scarves and sledging. But winter also means cold...though it's not cold everywhere. Picture this: you're standing at the bus stop, patiently waiting for your bus in the cold. When it finally arrives, you step inside, happy to finally trade the biting cold for the comfy warmth of your ride. It is at this moment that the fog strikes. Suddenly your glasses cover up in fog, making you blind as a bat. You try wiping the fog off, but it comes back stronger. The only ally you have in this battle is time. There is only one thing to do: take off your glasses and hope it goes away as fast as possible.
2. His little sister: the hot beverage
Need I say more?
3. The makeup concealer
Okay, this one is for girls only.
If you're a girl that likes to wear makeup, you have surely noticed this. After carefully applying your daily makeup, you put on your glasses. You look back in the mirror. Where has the makeup gone? It was just there! Well, technically it's still here, but only now it's concealed by your glasses.
4. Lying down: Okay, but only on your back.
Because you simply can't lie down on your side or on your stomach. Don't even try, it's not worth it bro.
5. Where are my glasses?
You could have sworn you put them here. See, your glasses are your keys' best friend. They both get lost easily, and appear at the most random places. It's just like looking for your keys, only worse. At least when you look for your keys you can see properly.
And the worst part is, they often end up being.... On your nose, leaving you feeling incredibly stupid.
6. Rain: the no-win scenario
Well, I'm not going to lie, rain is always annoying when you have glasses. If you don't have an umbrella, prepare for some major annoyance, or use your hand as a mini-glasses-umbrella (which kind of makes you feel stupid.) One does not simply outsmart the rain. You have two options: either you leave them on and have little wet dots all over your glasses, or you can take them off an see the world rather...unclearly. Note to self: invent the glass wipers.
7. The blind moments
In some situations, glasses are just not an option. Whether it's swimming, skiing, or an activity that involves goggles, glasses are a no-no. Hence, you end up splashing around the pool like Ray Charles, and try not to go too far from your friends so you don't lose them. Great. Well, at least you're a pro at Marco Polo.
8. The 3D experience
3D is awesome.
Oh wait. No I take that back.
9. The not so cool tricks
Come on, don't lie to me. I know you've tried one of these before. Yes, you were probably either 7 or drunk. But you did.
10. Can I try your glasses?
There are two possibilities here.
Possibility 1 : no.
Possibility 2 : Okay. (Be prepared for one of the following comments : "Dude you're blind!" or "do you even see?" or worse "How many fingers am I holding up?")
11. Readjusting them
12. "You look better without glasses"
I get this sooooo often. And it pisses me off. It pisses me off because since I have my glasses on 24/7, the only person to have seen me without them is probably my mom. So how do you know whether I look better without them? Huh? And FYI, I chose my glasses. Therefore, I love them. Plus, I feel naked without them. So I feel much more attractive WITH them. Thank you.
But hey, deep down we all love our glasses. They help us a great deal in our day-to-day life and since we can choose them, it's a good way to show our personality!
