A few days ago I found these cooler than cool sunglasses. You know the kind I mean....the EXPENSIVE ones. I tend to not do well with pricey accessories considering I lost a high dollar watch while decorating the Christmas tree a few years ago. I swore I'd never again by expensive accessories after that little episode.
So what do I do? I find these cooler than cool Ed Hardy sunglasses that featured a glittery dragon on the side-pieces. Now, I've never been one to blow money on stuff like this. After all, I'm not in the sun all that often. Most of the time, I'm buried in my little room pounding out a story.
Well, I gave in. I wanted those sunglasses. They were hot and hip and, after all, that's what I want to be, right? Ended up heading out yesterday to pick them up and I'll be damned if I didn't glance into my rearview mirror and see....GRAY HAIR. OMG! Time for an appointment with my hair goddess. I'm actually blonde and figured gray, wiry hair wouldn't be a problem for me. Boy, was I wrong about that one. That wasn't the big thing though. Suddenly I wondered...are these sunglasses too young for me? Are they too hip? You know...me and my granny hair might not be able to take the excitement of cool looking crystal dragons on the sides of my funky glasses.
Aw, well. It was a moment of insanity, that second-guessing. I am who I am, regardless of the age or the appearance of cool, way-too-expensive sunglasses. Life is short and gray hair or not, I'm going to have a little fun. The glasses are very HOT by the way!
