I just saw your new post on sunglasses. You didn’t address them, but the ‘transitions’ lenses that change from clear to dark depending on the light sounded like a great idea for someone like me who can’t seem to keep from sitting on her expensive prescription sunglasses every five minutes.
Wow was I wrong. They are the worst thing ever for a clergy person. If the sun is too bright at the door whne I am greeting people after the service, I find myself not able to greet people eye to eye. if I wear them to do a graveside service, they are so dark I look ridiculous and can’t see my notes, either.
Yuck yuck yuck. I will never buy these puppies again. They are a bad idea! (can you feel the passion there? I just had to share!)
We feel the passion, dear. We feel it and we feel the ouch in the wallet department, too, because those suckas are PRICEY. Learn from her, pigeons. Learn and avoid the moment of sheer mortification when you’re standing graveside going, “Dust thou wert, and to dust thou shalt… er, pardon me… return… I think… COULD WE ALL JUST TAKE FIVE WHILE I GET MY REGULAR GLASSES FROM THE CAR?”
