An eye on spectacles

Those who wear power glasses have a distinctive advantage. They can choose what to see and reject those they do not want to. When I spot a cockroach in the bathroom, I just remove my specs, run for the broom and attack. Sans glasses, all I get to see is a vague image. Klushh.. The poor guy is dead.
It is also my habit to hold my specs in my hand while walking/jogging (if at all I manage to shirk my laziness). The other day a lady came close to me with an angry face. “Pavithra’s daddy. I am waving Hi to you and you are not even responding!” she complained. It was my neighbour, but damn it, how do I know that without my glasses?
My gardener friend from Sri Lanka wanted a printout with his name. He was going on leave and wanted to paste it on his baggage. Tomorrow? He asked me five times. I nodded. As expected, I forgot. When I was walking on the road, I spotted the yellow uniform and surmised my friend would catch me. I removed my specks and kept walking as if I had not seen him. When I came close, I felt odd and put on my specks. Shucks, it was some replacement and my friend had already gone on leave.
Did you ask why not contact lens? People complain I look too handsome if I wear contacts. I am not interested in film roles boss.

Ok so I know at least one criterion to get villain character in a movie, that’s putting contact lens lolz 


A pair of powerful spectacles has sometimes sufficed to cure a person in love.

Njoy!!!

Cockroaches are the only bugs that I kill. All the others, I slide a piece of paper under and let them outside. The nasty roaches get the fly swatter and no sympathy!

I hope you are having a good day today. :)

Hi Handsome! You know, specs can be sooo sexy! (hope that doesn’t xxxx-rates your blog).

Anyway, as always you really know how to tell a good story! I had to think of my girlfriend: she worked at a cinema during her student years, and there she had this hilarious experience we still laugh about (I am easily entertained, eh…). Due to her vanity, she didn’t wear her glasses if she could help… So, one day, sitting in her glass-cabinet, she sees that shadow in the corner that resembled a human. Since he didn’t move she didn’t pay much attention to him, thought he would wait for somebody. Once in a while, she saw in his direction. After some more time, she got curious, and started to look intensely at the figure, you know, the way half blind people do – staring really, in a slightly forward position. She still couldn’t make out what he was doing. Finally, she put on her glasses and looked again: it was a flasher – I think she must have made him very happy that day:)))
