I read Mark’s post today and it made me laugh so hard. I just joked with him, that I started to list “searching for glasses” now under hobbies and interests (or special skills) because it seems to be something I repeat over and over. Mark’s post is a humorous “must read” for everybody who wears glasses (or not).
This morning, I became a grown-up: I attempted to remove glasses from my face that were already in my fist.
For those of you who are lifelong glasses-wearers (it is almost 40 years for me), you know that there are several distinct methods of removing eyeglasses and several messages that can be communicated in the manner of their removal. Off the top of my head, there’s “Two-handed and Thoughtful,” “One-handed and from the Right and Peeved” (I usually accidentally fling my glasses to the floor or across my desk with that one), and “One-handed and from the Left and Trying to Get to the Heart of Things.” There are others. Putting them on in front of people usually communicates this: “Enough Fun, Everyone. Back to Work.”
It can be like semaphore, but with glasses.
