We all remember that song, don’t we?
“I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, so I can
Watch you weave
Then breathe your story lines
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, so I can
Keep track of the visions in my eyes”
It’s a fine song. It makes me think of dark mysterious glasses that a mysterious man is wearing on a cloudy evening. Some cool pair of shades that not just anybody can pull off.
Have you ever tried to buy a pair of sunglasses?! I mean really? It’s one of the suckiest jobs out there! Unless you have a perfect face that looks good in anything, finding a great pair of shades is like finding a hot man on your doorstep! It sucks! I know because I tried to find a pair the other day.
I was at the local outlet mall and decided to stop in the Sunglass Hut because the Friday before I lost my sunglasses. They were a cheap pair from a clothing store, but I really liked them! I liked the way they fit, they way they looked, how they protected my eyes, everything! And it really bums me out b/c I have a hard time finding sunglasses to begin with. So anyway, there I am, standing in a store with nothing but cute sunglasses and feeling completely overwhelmed. Who knew you had so many options? Between colors, shapes, polarized, non polarized, brown tint, blue tint, bendable and not, it was like WTH?!
I tried on so many pairs that after a while I got confused as to which ones I liked and which ones I didn’t. Besides the sales person to ask an opinion on, I had my 5-year-old son with me. Well, can you imagine how this shopping experience was going anyway? Not well. In a boring store with a bunch of overpriced things he can’t touch was getting very old very quick to him. I found a pair I liked and decided to contemplate it while I did my other shopping. Deciding that I needed a new pair of sunglasses I went back and proceeded to put on 20 different pairs AGAIN! Like I didn’t try them all the first time!!! My son had enough and so had I. I left with one of the first pairs I had put on! Sadly, I’m not crazy wild about them. They’re nice and all, but I don’t know. I really wish I would have had someone there with me to tell me what they liked. And I really wish I had a face that looked good in anything so that way it wasn’t so hard! Anybody else have this problem, or did I just go overboard?!
