…take a second look

Oh the fashion trend.  Who knows when or where it will strike next.  It’s an allusive and unpredictable thing.  One minute it’s high schools full of scarves, next minute it’s courtrooms full of non-prescription hipster glasses.

There’s the end of that fad…it’s time to move on hipsters.

Did you know glasses make you look more intelligent?  So do criminal defendants and their lawyers.

Of course I’m sure this costume choice is in addition to a rock-solid case, supported by mounds of evidence and a strong desire for justice to prevail.

I for one am crushed to find out in this manner that my attempt to look intimidatingly brilliant (and correct my nearsightedness), has been doing just the opposite (except for on the nearsightedness).

I shall have to work on a new plot to strike intelligence-adjacent fear into the hearts of all whom I encounter.  I suppose I could wear my glasses and carry an alarmingly tall stack of books or use only really long words.

I don’t want to take it too far.  It’s important to find that balance between evil genius and book-worm.

  1. Once again, I find that I am somehow both way ahead of the curve and yet behind it. I suppose I should have seen this coming what with my childhood (and adulthood) fascination with Superman and the simple yet perfectly effective Clark Kent glasses disguise…
