I am of an age now where it no longer matters if I look like a
dork... GQ has never gotten around to asking me to model for them
either. (For those of you who don't understand North American slang -
a dork is an unfashionable, awkward looking person - Gentlemen's
Quarterly is a mens fashion magazine:)
So, since practicality has usually ruled my life - and I was
constantly losing my glasses - I've been wearing them on a cord
around my neck for about ten years now. Never lose them.
Since I spend a good half of the day on the microscope, and I hate
the distance that glasses put between your eyes and the scope
eyepieces - I just let 'em drop on my chest. When I get up from the
bench they are right there, never have to look for 'em.
I'm guessing that this may not be an option for some women... my
wife for instance, says that it won't work with her physique...
