The Best Things In Life ARE Free...

Like these bitchin' new shades I just got that I didn't have to pay a dime for. No shit! They gave me a pair free after I had my pupils dilated at the eye doctor. And here's the thing. You can have a pair of your own. Go to your local eye doctor and ask the front desk person for a pair. Chances are they'll think you're a little weird, but they'll still give 'em to you.

As you can see, they're quite nice-looking. Whatever you sacrifice in comfort, you more than make up for in the style department. They have a very slim profile. They double as a bookmark.
The one design flaw is that the cardboard earpieces are not water-resistant. I think this will be easily remedied with a little Saran Wrap and duct tape.

You might also try modifying a stretched out wire hanger for the all-weather version.

My best friend is an optometrist.

I go there because he checks my eyes out for free.

He dilates my pupils whenever I go, mostly because he thinks it's funny.

You should carry them at all times in case you find a skier that's gone snow blind.

Those are better than the free flip-flops I get with a pedicure!

Suze said...

The only thing that would make them better would be if they were 3-D sunglasses.

That is a look that *you* can pull off. You're lucky that way - you look good in everything!

You should totally get a bikini wax sometime- they give you a pair of super awesome paper underpants that they LET YOU KEEP!

Free fashion rocks.

Were your pupils still dilated in that shadeless photo? It kinda looks like it. I like those shades too! I don't know if it's just me, but I have to wear my regular shades in addition to those when I get my eyes dilated-it's still too bright! (and it's not even the future, man!)
