I was too late this time. My glasses were literally in two pieces. I made a joking remark to my husband about now how people could really make fun of me for being nerdy, as I looked around for some tape to do a makeshift repair.
When I woke up this morning after my husband had already left for work, I found my glasses sitting on the counter, the hinge reshaped, held together with some kind of tacky clear glue. I wouldn't have to wear taped-together geek glasses on the first day of school! It's been a good day.
Note: this post comes to you from the campus of my large state university. I have attended two lectures and a discussion section, and everything is going great. Yay!
