I broke my glasses because my brain, Peanuts, placed them directly underneath where my foot was supposed to go.
Peanuts and I have been wearing glasses now for 20 years due to adult onset blurriness, and you’d think my brain, Peanuts, would have figured out a way to not step on them.
But no, every once in a while Peanuts has to test me to see if I’m still paying attention (and I never am).
I don’t get it because there’s nothing Peanuts and I hate doing more than having to get new glasses. What was Peanuts thinking?
So I got my husband, 37, to tape them back together for me, because he’s an engineer so he knows about things like that.
Except that I didn’t trust his taping judgment once he was done and added more tape myself.
So now I’m officially a nerd.
I’d take a picture to show you but I think it might be too early in the morning for that. Oh what the heck, let’s live dangerously shall we?
Me in my new nerdy glasses:
Well, wait a minute . . . let me see if I can take the picture from a better angle:
Oh that’s better. I like this of me in my nerdy glasses a little better because you can’t really see the tape all that much.
Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, the careless behavior of my brain, Peanuts.
So now Peanuts and I will have to stumble down to the glasses store and get those nasty drops put in. Then once we are legally blind, we will be guided out front to pick out frames from the two or three thousand styles displayed right in front of our eyes somewhere.
The conversation with the professional four-eyes care specialist will go something like this:
Me: How do these look on me?
Her: Oh those look good on you.
Me: Really? Well how about these?
Her: Oh!!! Those look good on you!
Me. Really? What about these?
Her: Oh those!!! Look good on you.
Me: How about these?
Her: Oh those, look!!! Good on you!!
Me: And these?
Her: Oh those look good!!! On you!!
Me: Oh but what about these?
Her: Oh those look good on!!! You!!!!!
Me: Oh, yeah, what about these?
Her: Oh those look good on you.
Of course, we all know how this story ends. Peanuts and I will finally decide on frames, then go back to pick them up three weeks later because their motto is ready in about an hour give or take three weeks.
Me: Are you sure these are my glasses because they look horrible and I can’t see a thing.
Her: OH!!! THOSE!!! LOOK!!! GOOD!!! ON!!! YOU!!!
Then Peanuts and I will go home and while I’m crying my eyes out, Peanuts will be eating a 1000 grams of sugar.
Until next time . . . I love you

So, your glasses transformed you into a naughty librarian, have they?
Yes well, that’s just the life I lead, what can I say?
If only the salesgirl had used ellipseses.
Oh…those …look good…on…you
Well next time that sales girl will be using ellipseses or the glasses may end up in her :
But then I guess she’d just have a ;
Hahaha! Good ol’ Peanuts! Those glasses, the ones with the tape, REALLY make you look good. Your complexion looks so youthful and dewy, your lips so full and supple, your manicure so fresh and clean – I think I need a pair of those!
Haha! Who knew all it would take is a little tape . . Okay a lot of tape! Haha! 😀
I feel you pain. I think the slogan should be “Glasses in about an hour….unless they require prescription lenses.”
Haha Rich! You got that right! 😀
Shopping for glasses is the worst. Is it just me, or do they all look the same after a while? And if your vision is bad enough, you won’t even be able to tell how horrible they even look until the prescription is filled.
Yes, Erin, they DO all look the same and after awhile, you can’t remember the ones you really liked . . . I think I’ll take my phone with me and take a picture of myself before I actually order them.
I don’t know about nerdy, but you could start a new trend with the tape, it could become the in thing, after all breaking ones glasses happens to a lot of people, start a new trend and save everyone a heap of money. 🙂
Starting a new trend! Now that’s a brilliant idea Mags! It seems like it would be much easier to start a new trend than to go through the rigamarole involved in getting new glasses! HA! 😀
Oh man, I can really relate to this post. The gal who chose my frames for me while I was blind purposefully made me look like an owl. But she said THEY LOOK GOOD!!!1!!! Liar. : )
Hahaha! An Owl! Well listen, if it will make you feel any better I’ll get glasses that make me look like an owl too! I could do worse! 😀
Fortunately, I’m still in the reading glasses phase, so, I keep a basket (yes, literally a basket) of reading glasses nearby as I step on, sit upon, lose, etc on a regular basis.
Love the photo, you brave woman, you.
Oh I went through that reading glasses stage for about five years before I broke down and got my eyes examined. And truly it is sooooo much easier to get prescriptions bi-focals. And you don’t have to worry about Peanuts stepping on them either – I recommend you Go For It!
Every pair does look good ….that is soooo true!! I recently got new glasses and thought…’what was I thinking..they’re awful’… Toooo bad because it’s another 2 years before the insurance pays for another pair!….Diane
Oooooh! I hate when that happens! I went and got a new pair once and I hated them so much I set them on my lap while I was riding in the car and when I got out I forgot about them and lost them. I only had them one day! Luckily I could blame it on Peanuts! HA 😀
I asked my husband if I ‘accidentally’ broke them would we still have to pay or would I get another pair…free?? Unfortunately I’ll be wearing these for the next 2 years..it was just a thought!….Diane
Haha! Well, all you can do is try! (not to break them now!) Are they the pair you are wearing in your picture? I think you look really pretty in them! 😀
no they’re a different pair lol Diane
A different pair? Now I’m curious . . .you HAVE to post a picture! HA!
I changed my picture just for you..!….Diane
Ooooh! You look adorable in those glasses! They’re modern and really cute, Diane!! The new style of glasses do take some getting used to though. But definitely don’t break those . . . you’re The Bomb!
Ha! Thanks for helping me through the next two years..I guess it is hard just getting used to them…Diane
Ha ha! You’re very welcome Diane! 😀
Once you purchase your new glasses the sales person will try to upgrade you to get tinted, non glare, UVA detterent, moisture wicking, speck resistant lenses for an additional $5999. I look forward to seeing you in your taped splendors this weekend!
Oh yeah, it’s been so long since I’ve gotten glasses I forgot all about all those extras! And the coatings never do anything they say they are going to. And they are sooo expensive. Then last night 37 broke his glasses. Isn’t that weird?
I am short-sighted… been bespectacled for 13 years.. have been there, done that 😉 now I keep an extra and pray that I don’t sit on them!!!
Well that’s what I should do. But I know me . . . I probably wouldn’t be able to remember the “safe” place I put them in so I wouldn’t lose them! HA! Somebody needs to invent indestructible glasses! 😀
There are fibre glasses that don’t shatter and ya it’s soooooo hard to remember where we last left them!!!
Haha! I think I need industrial strength goggles tied with a string around my neck.
I went into a catatonic state once looking at the 50-foot Wall Of Frames. On the plus side, when I came out of the coma three weeks later, my new glasses were ready. (I was sorta pointing at a pair when I froze up, that’s how I made my selection– at least that’s what they told me.)
LOL Mark! I’m saving all your comments to make into a biopic about your life. OMG! hahahaha! So that’s why your icon is just a head shot. You got tired of explaining ad nauseum why you have been pointing into mid air for the last three years! But I gotta say your glasses look great though! 😀 In fact, I hope that happens to me when I go to get new ones! It turned out to be a pretty good method!
I recently sat on my glasses and broke them, I think my brain peanuts are honey roasted.
Haha! Idiot prufs! Honey roasted indeed! I hope at least when you put them back on they were warm and toasty having just experienced the bun warmer.
So what’s your husband’s brain called? Maybe just ‘nuts’?? 🙂
