The Glasses Half Full 

 
Everything changes eventually.

A boy called Chris was teasing me about my glasses:

Do you read a lot of books? I bet you do.

Reading books was not cool at age 9 in St Albans. 

Wearing glasses was not cool at age 9 anywhere.

Fifteen years later I walked into a shop on London’s famous Oxford Street and saw an incredible sight: fake glasses on sale as a fashion item!

I knew I wasn’t cool back then. But I bet Chris wears fake glasses now.

What do you think?
