About 2 1/2 years ago, one of my Chinese students was leaning over the desk, asking me a question, when I noticed something very strange...
her frames had no glasses!
When I mentioned that unusual bit of information to her, she told me she just loved the frames and it was so "fashionable, don't you sink so?"
Ha! Ha! totally funny.
Then, last week, as I stood in the elementary school lunch line with my 3rd grade granddaughter, I stared at a girl who looked like her glass frames were also empty. I casually mentioned it to dear, adorable Anna....
"Yes," Anna said, "those are just frames."
In 3rd grade?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!??!
She already feels compelled to make such a unique fashion statement by wearing frames with no glasses?!?!??!?!??!
(Just as a side note, I will say here that in years past, wearing glasses was the absolute kiss of death for girls....girls would bump into walls rather than be caught wearing glasses! My so much has changed!)
Well, looking at the positive side, I'm sure that frames only are much less expensive than having to put prescription lenses in them.
So, where do I get some of those funky, oversized empty lenses?
