No passing zone

glasses.jpgBoys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses.

If I thought it was likely that any boys would make passes at me at my age, well, I just ended an era for myself. Today I went to get glasses.

Although they are "just for reading" I know this is a slippery slope. Once Mom was fitted for reading glasses, she never went without again.

To anyone shopping for megane in Tokyo, I can recommend Zoff. They are quick, professional and inexpensive. My new glasses were only 5,000 yen.

And best of all, the cute, 20-something optometrist spoke English. I was slightly worried about the examination in Japanese, so I was very happy when Hikage-san just jumped right in and spoke perfectly fluent English to me. He made the whole experience much easier.

But he didn't make a pass...

Very cute.
Don't you know? That thing about girls with glasses is just a myth. ;-)

i think you look good!

YES! You do look really good.
I do wear megane too though some guys actually like it... hehehe

Thanks, everyone. I'll wear my glasses proudly. But only while I'm reading. :-)

ya, glasses can be good. have you ever read dance dance dance by haruki murakami? one of the main females is always noted for her glasses. i've definitely made passes at girls with glasses (who are usually in some of my classes), but fine asses are also helpful. ;o)

I was always proud of my 20/20 vision, being able to look up at the sky, watch as a plane flew overhead, and identify the name of the airline. I can still do that, but read the date on a penny? Nope. I hated the fact that I couldn't do it any longer and needed eyeglasses for reading. I've recovered. And it's true that the 'boys don't make passes ...' saying is a myth.

Any clues on how to order Zoff Glasses in the USA?
