MB and I got new glasses. Me, because I always get new glasses every two years. Him, because he went to get his driver's license at the State Troopers HQ and failed the eye exam. How could you not know that you can't see? Apparently, this was the case with MB. I wondered from time to time when I asked him if he could see something in the distance and he couldn't. Well, he is officially slightly nearsighted - enough that he has to take a special form to the optometrist in order to get his driver's license.

We went to the closest office as indicated on the insurance website. On one wall in the reception area there was a huge sign that said "Abortion Kills Children." In my examination room there was a water color depicting the roads to heaven and hell. In MB's, there were several framed documents in Hebrew, which led him to believe that the optometrist was Jewish. He wasn't Jewish, although I was glad that he did not attempt to convince MB that he would go to hell if he wasn't saved. The optometrist told me that there was no optometry school in Arkansas. I added that to my list of of absent institutions in the state, along with a school of dentistry, a school of library science, the Alliance Française, alumni associations for my undergrad and grad schools, Trader Joe's, Ikea, REI....

We both look pretty cute with our new specs. I'm still striving for the sexy librarian look. MB looks like one of those pretentious café intellectuals on French TV. When we smooch we have to be careful not to knock our lenses together. Let's hear for a purely tactile physical relationship!

I need new glasses. if only because i'm sick of the ones i have and 2 years has passed- now my insurance will pay.

both damon & i both wear glasses. it's fun when he takes mine & his off in a seductive way, because then i know i'm gonna get a kiss!

although i know that damon owns contact lenses and he used to wear them.. before he started dating me. haaha.

I think you guys look v. cute in glasses. I should try the seductive "reveal" - thanks for the tip!

I keep telling MB he looks so much smarter now.

Oh. My. God.

I'm usually pretty tolerant about displays of antifeminist pseudoChristianity, but that'd probably be enough to make me look for another optometrist. I mean, assuming my pagan/wiccan ass didn't burst into flames upon entering the office. Good gravy.

I'll put Arkansas on my list of "places like Texas I should really avoid living."

At least in Texas Austin would be fun to visit. Not sure if there's an equivalent of Austin here.
