This is a post about shopping for glasses. I am constitutionally incapable of ignoring a pun. I’m truly, truly sorry for the horrible title of this post. Really. I was powerless.

Moving on.

Hey kitty kats! Guess what? Not only did I go to the eye doc today, but I found I get one more year bifocal free and I get FREE PRESCRIPTION SAFETY GLASSES under my insurance! Ya’ll, I am going to be one stylish marketing manager working in manufacturing! Earlier this summer I sprang for super-cool Redwing motorcyle steel toed boots and now the free safety glasses? All I need is some swanky hi-vis gear and I’ll be set.

So. Safety glasses are covered… let’s move on to the real glasses. The ones I wear every day while Peppermint eyes them up, drooling and yearning for a delicious eyeglasses treat. I’m a lucky girl as we have a Warby Parker showroom here in Nashville (thanks to Ms. Lladybird for for the presence of mind to share that tidbit with me when I said in passing I needed glasses. Local tourguides are SO helpful!) I stopped by today for a try on session and snapped photos for mulling over in the safety of my home. I sent the snaps to the forester, and, of course, he and I completely favor different specs, so I thought it might be helpful to crowdsource this decision.

Or at least appear to. I am, after all, the decider and I’m pretty much in love with my fave pair… and… I KNOW I don’t NEED to say this. Because we’re all friends and you love me the way I am, but I really need to address the insane hair and fur collar situation in these pics. It was raining cats and buckets today. This is my all-natural, need a bang trim and a straight iron but I’m picking out glasses look. And that acrylic fur collar could use a nice brushing.

And with that, the contenders:

OK ladybears! Let’s vote! I’ve noted the option ‘number’ on each of the pictures, so it should be pretty easy….

Let me remind you again that your vote might not actually count. Unless you vote for the option I like, in which case we will be immediate best friends forever…

There were also two options for sunnies, but I’m not putting it up for a vote! I decided the minute I put on the favored pair that they needed to be mine. I’ll let ya’ll guess which ones I like.

I have friends who have done the whole free try on at home thing, and they seemed to enjoy the process. They are probably also people who are able to utilize the DVD option with Netflix. I opted for the DVD option once. After 3 months of letting disc 1, season 1 of Battlestar Glactica sit next to the TV, I gave in, sent the disc back and downgraded to streaming only. If I had to go through the samples at home route, I’d probably end up owing for them. They’d get sucked into the room of requirement that has existed in ever single one of my dwellings since I was eight years old. When I finally find that room, there will be enough public library books in there to start up my own lending library. Sigh. I really AM a good person…
