Slice of Lime-Making a Spectacle of Ourselves

Jillie just bestowed this award on me yesterday. She may just reconsider if she keeps reading this post. The rest of you may seriously question her reasoning too. Nonetheless, I thank her for her generosity.



I first got glasses when I was 6. They were a pair of purple and pink plastic frames. My main vanity in life is wearing contact lenses. I'm not a big fan of my frames. Never have been.


Mr. Lime also wears glasses on occasion. Isaac had to get specs when he was in kindergarten and has actually worn bifocals since he was 10. Diana had to get lenses when she was 15. Recently, Calypso, the last holdout in corrected vision, acquired a pair of glasses for herself. I wanted a picture of all three of the House of Lime girls in their glasses so I could toss it out here with a caption about men not making passes at girls who wear glasses. Both girls declined posing.



However, get them to the dollar store rack of truly horrid sunglasses and they will gladly don pair after pair and even let me whip out my camera phone. Mwahahahahaha!


Here we have Hypnosa, the female Elton John, and Catgirl.


Spacegirl Spiff, Dame Edna's sister, and a martian (all doing their Minnie Pearl tribute too, I might add, "Well, hoooooow DO!").

Sexy, no?
Dare we imagine the men who'd make passes at these girls in glasses?

You ladies look wowserous!
I actually dig lasses in glasses.
Get me anywhere near a rack of sunglasses or eyewear and I am doing all kinds of quick changes and goofyness.

I gotta ask you...Is that a real poncho or a Sears poncho yer wearin.

Man, Diana has got it goin' on!!!

Or maybe it's just the Hypnosa effect. . . Yes, Master. . . I am coming. . .I didn't get my first pair till I was 35 or so; I started noticing that, in a dark meeting room, if someone put up a slide with lots of small numbers on it, I couldn't make 'em all out. But still, here I am 53, and don't need more than reading glasses (which I mostly don't need, either) just yet.

Molly finally broke down and got her first pair of real specs a couple years back, around when she turned 50. A bit unusual, for both of us to have made it to 50 without majorly corrected vision. So, our kids can thank us for that (yeah, right. . .)

I have always had a thing for girls with glasses. MY WIFE wears 'em, of course, so... Actually, I think I dated more girls with glasses than not. I've never really thought about it before, but I think it may have something to do with trust. If a woman who wears glasses is willing to take them off for you, it means she really, really digs you, and trusts you, plus it's like another layer of clothing being removed and revealing a facet of her unseen before.

S said...

Very cute pics! Looks like youw ere having so much fun with the girls.
I love taking LR shopping. It's fun to see what she will pick out.

lime said...

cocotte, i promise not to try to sing like him

gman, lol, looks like you came in second though

ananda, we are a bunch of goofs so yeah it was fun

snowelf, you must show us if the plot works

nyd, it's real in that my mom knit it herself, it was not a purchased item. my girls wore it when they were small too since i still have it.

desmond, you and molly are very fortunate in that regard.

suldog, very interesting thoughts on glasses. i never thought of it that way before.

s, LR seems to have inherited the same hamminess you and ratburn share, which is very cool :)

Maddy said...

Oh I don't know.......

Shadow said...

cool glasses. cool award. congratulations!

Beach Bum said...

Sexy, no?Actually, yes. Although I find my glasses a pain.

Cooper said...

There's something about a woman wearing glasses....i think it's the tags hanging off the side that makes it....

mssolitaire said...

LMAO!!! Wonderful!! I too want to get contacts, especially since the majority of my friends have never seen me all done up without my glasses, unless I'm on stage! :P

airplanejayne said...

I went to my Dollar Store in such of these lenses.

No such luck...

Craver Vii said...

tsduff said...

How do you succeed in looking fab in everything you put on? I got that award from Jillie too, but I think she is off her rocker there :) Great pictures young lady.

BTExpress said...

I got the award too. We are two sexy hotties.

Fred said...

Love the cat glasses. You guys really look great. And, of course you deserve the award. Well done!

~Dragonfly~* said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun with your beautiful young ladies.... As a woman who wears glasses (with bifocals I might add) I really had to give what Suldog said some thought... and you know? He is right on the money!!! The only time I've ever taken my glasses off in a social setting is if I really really liked the guy... I never even realized it before!! Thanks for the insight Suldog!!!

Jazz said...

Sexy indeed. Myself, I have problems with contacts, so it's specs for me. And I've had some kick ass specs. Except these last ones, they're ugly and make me ugly. Why did I buy them? Because I couldn't find anything else, I was annoyed and I am a moron. With any other glasses I'm sexy as hell.

Cheesy said...

Edna's sis ROCKS!

KFarmer said...

Digging those groovy shades~ You all look marvelous darling... simply marvelous :)

lime said...

furiousball, no we put them all back

trucker, hehehehe, thanks

tsduff, you are deserving as well. i happen to know you can rock the tie dye ;)

btexpress, from one sexy blogger to another...*sizzle

fred, thanks

dragonfly, suldog definitely makes sense

jazz, i really need some new frames even though i am mostly about the contacts.

cheesy, *struttin my stuff

kfarmer, *in fernando voice* and it is always better to look marvelous

Pouty Lips said...

citizen of the world said...

Great glasses! I want the Catgirl ones.

Jocelyn said...

Men would violate all sorts of laws to take passes at the three of y'all.
