Red-Eyed Monster

Did I mention that in Singapore the whites of my eyes are a fetching shade of magenta? Naturally, this means contact lenses are a no-go, which offends against both my vanity and precision of vision (my black plastic nerd-chic glasses were made back before I went to university, and my eyesight has worsened considerably since then).

Dorothy Parker said that “Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses”, but this is an alternative point of view that makes for interesting, if not wholly convincing, reading.
