People who see the depth of my spectacles ask if I’m usually wearing contacts. The answer is no. I’ll wear my glasses when I’m driving, if I’m at a poker table, or if I go to a sports bar to watch a game, but other than that the minimalist in me likes to keep my face light and free.
I’ve been living by the philosophy that the world is a beautiful place if you don’t look too closely. Your apartment isn’t such a mess if you can’t see the crumbs of food all over the carpet. Those aren’t gray hairs on your head if you can’t see them in the reflection. That girl you’re making out with doesn’t have a mole on her mole.
Ignorance is bliss and so is blindness. I’ve got built in excuses for why my basketball and tennis games are mediocre. I can’t see the damn ball. If I miss a spot while shaving, I couldn’t see the reflection. It’s much more pleasant to blame outside factors than to have to look at yourself. Especially since you can’t see yourself without wearing glasses.
