Berlin Highlight #247: Glasses


It is no exaggeration to say that my trip to Berlin revolved around glasses. Two beautiful specimens owned by Matthias, Caitlin's beau. One doesn't just wear these glasses; one wears a persona. Donning the glasses means adopting a new personality or simply realizing an previously ignored aspect of your own.


Wearing the glasses is a form of self creation of self recreation.


Wearing the glasses is the ultimate disguise. You become utterly unrecognizable.



Wearing the glasses changes how you are seen by others and by yourself. They change the way you walk . . .



. . .and the people that will talk to you (Do you honestly thing Paris would hang with Matthias if he was glassesless?)


The glasses add a newfound element of seriousness to your life and to your being.



Glasses.

And how do I get a pair of these glasses? I've tried the salvation army but generally people that tend to go for the wider frame look also have prescriptions of about -9 that knock you off your butt. Hmm...
