Perspective

I recently posted that I now have to wear glasses all the time.  I find this mortifying.  My eyes, if I may be so bold as to mention it, are really my best feature.  (I assure you, the competition for that title is stiff.  My nose hasn't spoken to my upper lip in three years, and my ears still boycott holiday meals.)  But, my eyes win the contest, so I do my best to "play them up" through subtle use of makeup and expression:



It would be difficult to draw attention to my daintily pointed ears in such a fashion.

Now, with glasses, I feel like a librarian: dowdy, frumpy, and old:



It turns out, Sven thinks I look like a librarian, too.  Only Sven has a slightly different interpretation of the word:



Who knew?  In any case, I feel a little better about the glasses.  Once this pinkeye clears up (I know, how could I be more sexy, right?) I'll put on some makeup and take a picture of my new glasses.  My hopes, frankly, aren't high, but who cares?

The way I look in Sven's eyes is better than any mirror.

YOu can't wear contacts at all?

MMMmmm, Madame Librarian, you make me want to whisper...

No contacts at least until January, then I may try them, especially since only one eye needs correction. But my eyelids don't close all the way when I blink or sleep (sexier and sexier, right?) so contacts can be an issue due to chronic dry eye...

I have been trying for the past 13+ years (very nearly 14 now!) to convince my wife that she is devastatingly beautiful. I think I am starting to wear her down.

Hmm-that eye jewel stuff is beautiful. Why have I not been making it an every day requirement? Starts now.
