Oh, I know this isn’t of any great importance, but I’m getting new glasses. I’m very excited. They look a bit different than the glasses I usually get. And when the optometrist described them as retro, I knew they were perfect, because the main character of my new novel used the same word in admiring the glasses worn by a neighbourhood mom. I wrote that several drafts and three years ago, well before the new Sex In The City movie, according to my young and hipper than me optometrist, made that style popular.
This is the picture I modeled my description after. My glasses are not quite so turned up, more of a brownish colour, and metal on the lower side of the lenses.
A photograph of my actual glasses will be forthcoming as soon as they’re ready.
