Right away I started
Speaking of my cute new frames, the lady at the glasses kiosk in the office kept telling me the glasses I was choosing to look at were so "geek chic". I smiled at her, but I kept thinking "Ummmmm, normal, they are normal to me." They were all the only ones I'd even consider, so what does that say about me? I went with this great little pair that turned out to be Kate Spade, and then she pointed out I have expensive taste. So, expensive geek chic? What is the conversation we are having here? Is this like "hipster cat" saying "It cost a lot of money to look this poor?". I thought they were cute... not "revenge of the nerds". Not even "revenge of the nerds walks into Bergdorfs." Maybe I've shared enough of my life with a real geek that I can no longer recognize geek. Kind of like how you can't smell your own house anymore until you go on vacation and come back. I can't smell my own geek anymore.
I guess I'll find out when they come in, and I get the verdict from my family... as long as they haven't become geek-desensitized. Either way, it's going to be a long week wearing these old glasses that are from a couple prescriptions ago. I get to enjoy a nagging headache while I squint at everyone. I guess I'll finally know what it's like to be Gilbert Gottfried... minus the socially insensitive and inappropriate twitter outbursts.
