My new glasses

Remember the story of me getting my eyes checked? Well, I went to pick them up today. And by the way, this is how hideous I look like now.
On my way from the airport, I dropped by the store and asked if I can pick up my glasses even though I do not have the receipt. She said that I do not need any receipt. Now, some of you may know that I run an Identity and Fraud business. Naturally, that instinct kicked in. As she was adjusting the glasses on my nose, I asked her – “Are you not afraid of Fraud? What if somebody else came and picked up my glasses”?
The sharp young Iranian lady born near the Caspian Sea retorted – “And do what? Wear them himself and lose ability to see or search the world for another person who has the same number as your glasses in both eyes”?
Man, she completely nailed me. So, I kind of gave a stupid grin and agreed.
Half way to office from the store, I suddenly realized something and almost turned the car around to fight her back but thought the better of it. “What if he took the glasses out and sold the frames”? is what I wanted to counter her 🙂

    Those glasses make you look very.. Italian! No american island shirts anymore – just tailored crisp white shirts to complete the look 😉 And yes, only cappuccino after a run!

    You are lucky… Get to interact with really witty women… By the way, isn’t this the style you were trying couple of months back, dark full outlines around your glasses? These make you look geeky,…. I liked the earlier pair better 🙂

    Rajib, the tubelight moment you describe goes well with the rather somber displeased look in the photo.

    Rajib, you should tell yourself one of your p.j’s – that will take care of the smile. You look like a geeky mafia boss here 🙂
