glasses. No strike that: I've always had a hate relationship with them.
On the one side there's my vanity: I can't help but feel my glasses make me less attractive. On the other side is my laziness: glasses are só easy: you put them on and off you go! Contacts require much more effort, and a hand-eye coordination I do not possess.
During Summer Vacation laziness beat vanity, but now that the kids are in school, vanity has staged a come-back and I'm having a flirt with contacts again!
Whát's that on the black board?!
When I was ten years old, the words on the black board started getting blurry, and the school doctor said I needed glasses. I thought things were looking bad, but a year later I also got a pair of braces that wrapped around my head, turning me into an Ugly Betty avant la lettre! Suddenly my glasses were the least of my worries.
Glasses reflect the fashions of times gone by
When I look back at pictures of myself with my eyeglasses, I can't help but smile. You can easily tell which decennium the pictures were taken, just by looking at my frames. During the eighties I wore big frames, and in the nineties they were really small. Right now I'm sporting so called 'nerd glasses'. I'm going for the look that says: 'Don't be fooled by these glasses! I'm real sexy underneath them!'
Buying a new frame is kind of fun, and they come in all different kinds of shapes and prizes. Unfortunately the fun usually stops when you have to buy the glasses that go into the frame. That's when it starts getting expensive. So I was excited when I found GlassesUSA.com, a company that prides itself on a 110% lowest prices guarantee, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Virtual mirror on the wall, which frame is the prettiest of them all?
One of the challenges of buying a pair of glasses, is that you need a pair of glasses to see how they look! It's hard to really judge how they look without 20/20 vision! Glasses USA have thought of that: they offer a virtual mirror, that allows you to try on different looks, after which you can buy the prettiest pair of glasses online.
I've got a coupon for that!

Help me out: do you think glasses make a person less attractive?
