Protective Eyewear

It's pretty common knowledge that when you're outside on a bright, sunny day, you should wear sunglasses. They're good for keeping you from squinting when the sun's too bright, but they also protect your eyes from the ultraviolet rays and blue light. So, it's safe to say that when you're getting ready to spend a week at the beach, you should probably pack at least one pair of shades.

These are a good example of the kind of sunglasses you would not want to pack, unless you only have one eye.

That's my friend Matt up there, and I gave him a hard time about those one-eyed shades.

The other day we ventured out to Rosemary and did a little window shopping. Since NB doesn't like my favorite sunglasses, I decided to look for some new ones.

These were my favorites right off the bat.

I also thought these could be cool to have anytime it was someone's birthday.

One downside of wearing sunglasses for long periods of time, for me at least, is that my ears start to hurt. But I have a feeling that wouldn't be a problem if I had some that velcroed on like these!

Trying on sunglasses was fun but in the end, I walked away empty-handed. I am kinda sad that I didn't buy the batman ones. But since I already have 3 or 4 pairs in regular rotation, I couldn't justify buying another pair.

Fast-forward to earlier today when I dropped my sunglasses on the pavement before hopping in the car. This is what I get for making fun of Matt's one-eyed sunglasses.

Karma is a you-know-what.
