Sometimes Sean just doesn't get excited about things the way that I do; the way that he should. For example: I am totally a hat person. Or, more accurately, i want to be. What's holding me back is my stupid glasses. I have a hard time wearing hats because they press down on my glasses which gives me a major headache. Trying to hoof it around this town in the bitter cold is painful enough. (<-- there is my daily whine about the weather) Therefore, my desire to wear hats is frustrated and I haven't been sure what to do.
A few days ago I bought a couple beanie hats at H&M. I wore one on Saturday and though it wasn't a tight hat at all, it still pressed down and i had a good headache by the end of the day. Bah! So last night I figured it out, and this is where I see a serious lack of enthusiasm from Sean because, in my opinion, this solves ALL of my hat problems.
My brilliant idea? To put my glasses on OVER the hat. exhibit A:
exhibit B: (closeup)
Isn't that marvelous? It totally takes care of my problem! There's no pressure on my glasses. They can rest easy and light on my face like glasses should, and I can see AND be warm, headache-free!
When I made this discovery and whooped triumphantly, I showed it to Sean who looked at me thoughtfully for a moment and then responded in his dry, Sean-way: "that... is uber-geeky."
What?? This is GREAT! is what i said. "AND," i continued excitedly, "I can pull the hat down a bit and hide behind it when i'm out and about!" (yet can still see)
To which he replied, "you look like a total freak right now."
No way. I am convinced this is an awesome idea and I amaze myself at my own ingenuity. It's going to catch on too, mark my words. You saw it here first.
