Nerds on the Run
Last night I had to leave work early to meet the Boy for a very important mission.
We had to find him new glasses. His frame broke last week, and for the past few days he's been wearing his old glasses that pinch his head. The alternative is walking around with his lenses affixed to his broken frame with scotch tape. Very nerdly.
The thing is, he can't even go shopping for new glasses without me. Because he's so blind without his glasses, that he can't even see what other frames look like when he wears them!
Which makes for an interesting situation. He's basically helpless without me. Hahahaha.
Last night he tried on several pairs. When I said, "Those look great on you!" he looked suspicious..as if he didn't trust what I was saying.
But then he figured that my desire to NOT be seen walking down the street with his dorky self outweighed any other supposed desire to make him choose dorky looking frames. And began to trust me accordingly.
We found him a very nice pair. I went to sleep early, my purpose in life fulfilled. #
