Can’t read restaurant menus? Maybe you need reading glasses. Yes, it happens to the best of us.
In tales of vanity, reading glasses make you look 100yrs. old, so you hide them but are forever doomed to order the daily special!
It’s another beautiful day in Paradise, Las Vegas. I am an empty nester.
I mean the nest is empty, really. The husband is gone and even the dog died, RIP faithful friend.
I am living alone for the first time in ages, a newly single woman after many years lived as a married one. I am finding that life is sometimes weird in new ways.
Case in point: the whole dating scene. Here in Vegas it’s interesting because the city attracts so many transients. I go to meet ups that I organize through an online travel community, attend local business networking events, peruse dating websites and belt out a tune or two at the local karaoke bar. My social circle includes lots of interesting people from various backgrounds. I try to be as much of my true self around others as possible.
To ‘be’ your ‘self’ you must first ‘know’ your ‘self’, right? Well I think I’ve figured out a few things about my’self’ and one of them is that I HATE to be seen in public in reading glasses! (Too ‘self’ conscious!) And I hate, when on dates, to have to pull them out. But I’m all but blind to read anything without them, so what to do?
Well the most fun thing I’ve done recently was something I really never thought could even make me smile.
About the time I started needing to wear reading glasses, Lookie Lous reading glasses hairband was invented by Kelly Coty of Nashville and I started wearing them. Thank goodness I could toss out my old reading glasses and still see the fine print. All while looking sexy at the same time. Bring on the dinner dates!
Before I discovered Lookies, I used to struggle and squint or get young children to read for me. If I was going out to eat, I’d call the restaurant ahead of time to know the menu so I wouldn’t have to try to read it once I got there. Now, I proudly wear my Lookie Lous readers. They are so unique everybody wants to know where to buy them. What a cool uni-sexy ‘readerband’ alternative to traditional reading glasses.
So even if the weirdness of dating remains at least the challenge of old lady reading glasses is resolved, so it’s off I go.
Now throw away your reading glasses, get some Lookie Lous and go get yourself a date.
Have a beautiful day,
from Paradise, Las Vegas
