A second post for the evening

So I mentioned yesterday that I would need to continue with photos of my evolution of eyeware.
Yesterday's photo, as you can see, contains some rather large specs. Not entirely sure what I was thinking when I picked them out. Probably just liked their blue/green color.

Now, I have to mention, I wasn't the most careful child when I was younger. It actually is kindo f handy for me now, because I can date my middle school photos by may glasses. That's right, a new pair every year.

I'm not entirely certain if it was this first pair or the replacement pair, but I remember one day I was chasing Andrew down our back stairs. He got to the bottom before me and he slammed the door at the bottom of the stairs. He slammed it on my face, which happened to be halfway throught that doorway. Glasses broke.

So here we have the replacement pair. These were selected, not because I liked them, but because they were the exact same size and shape as my previous pair so that the same lenses could be used.

Oh, and Mel, if you ever meet my mom can you mention to her that you've seen old pictures of me and I did, in fact, need braces? She seems to think that I only wanted them because Andrew had them. Um, no?! Andrew's teeth were much worse than mine, but mine were pretty bad.

Dig the glasses!! And I'll tell her about the braces, but if you compared your childhood teeth to mine, you'ld look like a pagent girl!!

The only thing that would have completed that look would have been braces. I should know. I'll have to dig out that picture. Love it!

i don't see the need for braces!! I'm the only one..owell. what a fine scrapbook idea! the many glasses of chris or something.

Christine- it's mainly my front two teeth. They stick out a lot and at kind of funky angles. I think I probably have other pictures that show it a bit more.

Tami- I wear contacts now, although I do like my current glasses. A picture of them will probably show up next week.
