I've recently been reminded of how I'm aging. Sadly its badly, it appears once I can see the full visage of my face. On Saturday I put in contact lenses for the first time in, oh so many years, and was greeted with a full facial frontal in the mirror. Seeing myself clearly, without the obscuring by poor vision or the camouflage of glasses, was a shock. I was in blissful ignorance, and quite happy in that state. Now the unveiling has occurred. I aged ten years in five seconds.
I proudly wore the new glasses to work and had several compliments. I even kept them on when giving a presentation to office newbies, feeling youthful and sassy. As an aside I noticed that with bold, in your face frames I needed a subtle lip colour.
