Yesterday I found Monkey Pants rummaging through Shane's bed side table. I started putting everything back and came upon a glasses case. I opened it up to find a pair of glasses clearly not from the last 10 years by the style. Beth was over and when I realized what they were and told her we almost wet our pants. They were Shane's glasses from the 3rd grade that I thought he had gotten rid of approximately 3 years ago. But here they were safely in his night stand. Is he serious?
You see Shane is a bit of a pack rat, but a very very organized one. So every once in a while I come across something hilarious carefully put in its perfect little place. The first year we were married I went looking through the file cabinet for something. In a file marked birth certificates I found, and I am not making this up, a cabbage patch birth certificate for his old doll. Do we have the doll? No, but thank goodness we have that document.
So, last night when Shane got home from class he found me reading in bed wearing his glasses. We both had a good laugh and then I asked him why why why did he still have them. His answer just reminded me of why I do love this guy. "Because I keep meaning to donate them to the Shriners. The collect glasses for people who need them."
This morning we made a deal. I would make his lunch if I could take some photos of him in his glasses. Handsome huh? He looks like Clark Kent to me. The best part, ok maybe not the best part, but I was looking at the inside of the frames and it has the model name, Luxotica. Like a cross between luxurious and exotica. Oh yeah, that is exactly what I thought when I first saw them.
Come back later today because I have an announcement to post. No, I'm not pregnant.
