I was in my 20’s before I heard the expression “Boys don’t make passes at girls with glasses.” It was while I was “wishful make-uping” with a friend of mine prior to going out to a show (Pavement?). You know the routine: music blaring, clothes and shoes draped over…everything, and my already crowded vanity made even more chaotic with the addition of another girl.
I went to put on my glasses after applying that extra coat of mascara when to my surprise my friend uttered the aforementioned phrase with a giggle.
My response? Sez You! I had never had a problem attracting boys, specky or no specky. Apparently I am not alone as the rest of the world seams to have really caught up.
See for yourself.
