Way, way back, many centuries (or at least decades) ago, when I was in first or second grade, one of my chasing suitors was John D. John troubled me because he wore these glasses. These really creepy glasses that turned dark when he went outside. EWWW! I've never been able to shake that image from my mind. I often wonder if Johns whole life was "ruined" by the stigma that these glasses gave him.
Yes my friends...I am talkin about Transition Lenses.

WHAT are they? More importantly WHY are they? I HATE them! I despise and detest them. Am I alone here? Who's with me?
Nothing says creepy, or nerd quite like it.
And really....does and ENTIRE family need to be dragged down in the tragedy?
One time, Jere went and got new glasses, without me, without my consult. Tra la la, he comes home and WHAT does he have? Freakin, make me wanna run and scream, post a sign over your head that you're a Chester (SIDEBAR: Don't ever name your child Chester, that's just downright rude. Bad name, PLUS, it holds some serious creep factor. Just sayin. And sidebar over.), TRANSITION LENSES! Hideous!!!!! Not cool my love, NOT COOL. Pictures were just so annoying....'cause OOPSY, your glasses are dark.
I get it, clever....no extra pair of sunglasses, all in one. Great idea, but the execution just does NOT work.
I felt the time had come to discuss this because I just KEEP on seeing commercials for these awful glasses. They try and make them seem so cool, and hip. They try and use pretty ladies to make it all seem ok. 'Tis NOT ok. NEVER GONNA BE OK.
Whatever....you may be cute, model girl, but your glasses are NOT.
Ok, I feel better having that off my chest. Now, tell me what you think? Am I a freakshow? Do you love them? Hate them?
Sunshine and creepy eyes,
