glasses.

I wear contacts 99% of my waking hours. I very rarely wear my glasses to work or out in public.

On Tuesday I wore my glasses to school because after having the contacts in my eyes for just a few minutes, my eyes were irritated. I thought I'd mix it up and wear the glasses.

Big mistake. Since Tuesday, I've had SIX coworkers ask me what's wrong. Am I ill? Is everything okay? Am I having a rough year? Are you feeling alright?

What?! Just because I'm wearing glasses, does not mean I'm sick. When someone asks me if I'm sick, I pretty much equate that to, "You look like crap".

Thanks friends. Thanks for the self esteem boost.

  1. I have debated getting another pair of glasses, which would mean one year without contacts paid for ... and then I realize I NEVER where my glasses. They make my bangs hit funny and change the "swoop" angle, and then I read your post and it reinforced why I never wear mine too! People always ask why I am wearing them .... hahah!!!

  2. Nothing much fits me in my 8th month of pregnancy...even my contacts! I have had to wear my glasses for the last two weeks. I got the same thing...are you feeling okay? Worst part is that I have a while to go yet!

  3. Oh no!! That happened to me last week, too. My allergies have been bugging me and I was rubbing my eyes too hard and tore a contact, so I had to put my glasses on. So many people asked if I was alright...um, yeah? Can't I just wear my glasses??

  6. What is it with people assuming something is wrong if you bust out glasses for awhile. I hate that! Ugh!

  11. I RARELY wear my glasses outside too!! My coworkers didn't blink when I did though. But at least I had new frames... I had been rocking ones from HIGH SCHOOL until this year! Let's just say they were very outdated. :)

  15. I think it just depends on what people are use to seeing you in. I wear glasses to work everyday and whenever I take them off for a second my students all say I look "weird!" and that they like me better with them on.

    Whenever I see people wearing glasses when they usually don't, I don't think they look bad, but I do wonder if they're not feeling well or were too tired to bother with contacts. Maybe people don't mean you look bad in your glasses, maybe they're just curious why you're wearing them.

    I'm sure you're cute in them :)
