It's pretty weird that:

a.) as a child, I had to get glasses, in general, and being ridiculed for it
b.) having to worsen this situation because I had to choose from the "insurance" rack of styles, the styles for which insurance would either help to pay or pay entirely, which furthered the ridicule
c.) people today spend hundreds of dollars to achieve the "look" I was forced to have

I know the feeling - I've been wearing glasses since I was 6 years old, and had to buy those plastic Buddy Holly/Elvis Costello frames cuz that's all we could afford.

I remember kids calling me a "four-eyed homo" when I was nine years old. Nine! Nobody even knew what that meant back then anyway, but boy kids could be mean. And now those frames do cost reedonkulous amounts of cash.

What the hell? My wife and son also wear glasses, and we all still buy the bargain frames.
