Last weekend I was at a fabulous bloggers conference in Chicago. Toward the end of the day my vision kept seeming goofy. I figured it was because my contacts were getting old. But that evening when I went to take my contacts out....the left one was no where to be found. Of course this would happen just days before I leave for a trip where I do NOT want to wear my glasses.
For me contacts aren't just about vanity, though I do feel better without my glasses but my upcoming trip would include a lot of running around New York City...in August. It will be warm and humid and I am constantly pushing my glasses up my nose even without sweating. Plus I don't have sunglasses so I prefer to wear my contacts so I can wear sunglasses. Yes, they give me racoon eyes, but those fade quicker than the wrinkles from squinting.
