Glasses - Who needs them? ( Grab the Discount Code for a new pair below!)

Glasses....would you rather live with them or without them?

Did you know you can order glasses on-line?  I didn't.  I have had the same pair of prescription glasses for 10 years!  My sunglasses are another story... Hang in there with me while I ramble and share a few stories about glasses today.  (There is a special discount code at the end. You can skip to that part if you don't want to read my stories.)

This morning I caught a taxi to the pueblo to go shopping.  It was sunny and I was still feeling a little groggy.  I guess my morning coffee didn't kick in yet.  My sunglasses were one of the first things I threw in my purse.  I should have made sure my money was there in too, oh well.  ( I 'll save that story for another day:)

Why were my sunglasses my top priority this morning? Let's just say I didn't feel like making a lot of eye contact!

 Do you ever use your sunglasses like that? - As something to hide behind? That was me this morning, hiding behind my sunglasses.

 So here I am in the back seat of the taxi...

Then I noticed my taxi driver was wearing some cool shades.  So I asked him if I could take a "photo".  To which he responded with a great big smile - "Si"!   

 BUT one wasn't enough...

He insisted I take one of him outside the taxi too!  Then, he had to look at the picture and make sure it came out ok:)  Such a sweet guy...

Then at the market I ran into some people sporting some really stylish shades...and of course I asked them for a photo too!

After a long day shopping, I returned home.  I put all my fruits away while talking to everyone at home about  wearing glasses.  Then, one of the kids insisted that I get a picture of him in some cool glasses too! 
 Here he is...

So there you go everyone in glasses today:)  What do they all have in common - STYLE!

Well what about prescription eyeglasses, yes I think those are all about style too!

You know they make us look more intelligent!

 At least that's what I thought when I had to get my  prescription glasses at 16 to see the blackboard!  Good thing or I would've had to sit in the front row in all my classes!  Sorry, I don't have a picture of that 16 year old girl to share right now:(

Oh, I just thought of one more story about glasses.  If you are ever going out to eat... (especially anywhere in Central America) make sure you bring your reading glasses if you have any!  If you don't, you can order glasses online below using the cool "Try-it Mirror" below.

One day in a restaurant about a month ago, we were eating some fried Panamanian food....and low and behold right there on top of my fried bread was a part of an insect body! Then I looked a bit closer, yep it was the head.   Then a little bit closer and found some more insect body parts ----ewwww -

No, I didn't pay for the food.

 I couldn't help but look around at all the other people eating there who maybe didn't have a clue about possible bug parts on the menu.  The restaurant was dark and not one of them were wearing their glasses!

 No, I wasn't wearing reading glasses at the time.   (So far I don't need glasses to read this- but if I was far away, I may have to pull some out:)   

 So what did I have to my benefit that day?

We were sitting next to the door with some good old fashioned sunlight to brighten up my food and the bugs!

So feel free to hop ( no pun intended - hee hee) on over to GlassesUSA.com and get yourself some reading glasses - you don't want to be caught in that situation!  They also have a  Sales & Coupons page with  current site-wide deals :)
