Have any of you ever been flipping through a beauty magazine and stumbled across an article on how to choose the correct shape of frames or necklines or hairdos for your face shape? And the three options are oval, heart-shaped, and square? And the shapes look roughly like this:
Mine kind of looks like this:
(Sister Dear, yes, I know you jaw is squarer than mine, but you have a fun hairline with a widow's peak to make it look good. All I have is forehead, acres and acres of forehead. With almost-bald spots at my temples where my hair is really fine and wispy, which is really cute on a toddler, but I'm 27.)
They don't sell glasses for women with faces like this, people. In fact, I found my last pair in the men's section.
So, I've been putting off getting new glasses for about four years now. The pair I found way back then was perfect for my face and I haven't found any like it since.
I eventually broke when my glasses got so scratched that putting them on almost made my vision worse. I was aggravated.
And the only place even remotely close to us that took our insurance was the Wal-mart vision center. Wal-mart. I was pretty sure I'd only find glasses like this:
Instead, I found these:
Oh, PhotoBooth. I love you and your crappy, flattering photos. Did you know that the one other picture of me in existence that I do not hate is also grainy? Hmmmm.
These glasses are almost identical to my old ones, only more flattering. It's a Christmas miracle! I love these glasses beyond all reason.
Also, I can see again. I suppose that's kind of cool, too.
I should mention that I recently discovered the funniest person on the Internet: Hyperbole and a Half. She does a lot of entries with lots of paint pictures, so it might look like I'm stealing ideas from her.
A) I'm not very good at Paint, whereas she is.
B) I've done entries before using Paint, but my Mac didn't have an equivalent program until now, which is why I haven't.
C) She inspired me to find a Mac Paint program so that I can go back to doing really crappy photo editing and diagrams for my entries.
Just so we're clear.
