how to add 10 IQ points instantly…

we’re currently in Singapore on 2 weeks well-earned rest (if travelling with 2 children is called “rest”).
Today I bought some new spectacles.

For a long time I’ve been using contact lenses, and I look like this:

6 years ago (wow, is it that long?) I bought a pair of glasses here that I really like – they have minimal frames and look like this:

but today I decided to go for something a bit different. Sort of Michael Cain meets Clark Kent…

whadd’y’all think?

    I just got a similar pair; I like the square black style. I don’t think I’ll wear them until I leave the country, though; I want to have them in case contact lenses aren’t convenient for the developing world.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and be quite honest. Even though I know the pictures were taken on the same day, they look like age-progression photos. You look youngest in the first photo. I think the most recent pair of glasses makes you look older.

      yup, that’s fine. I’m looking for something different. I was hoping, though, that you would say more intelligent… πŸ˜‰

        Hehe, my sister, Terri aka thinks men get sexier with age.

        As for your intelligence, your writing speaks for itself. πŸ™‚ Don’t strive to be one of those old stuffy intellectuals. Stay young, write well. πŸ˜‰ Remember… God looks at the heart. πŸ˜€
