    well, 2/3 isn’t so bad… but that SUCKS about the glasses!

  2. Maureen says:

    Where did you get that bag? Would you just die if you saw me with one just like it on the 66?

  3. Beth S. says:

    I can barely look at those smushed glasses. Seriously, it pains me. Physically. I wonder if you grew up in a house like mine, where glasses were sacred items, and damage to them (accidental or no) was the single most awful trangression you could ever possibly commit…

  4. Bonne Marie says:

    The demise of the glasses made me physically ILL! I really needed them to complete my assignment that day and when I found them smashed in the gutter – FLATTENED by MY OWN TIRES – I almost fainted…

    Glasses, with my upbringing, were also rather sanctifed objects…

    Maureen – I got the bag at the Marshall Field’s in River Oaks Plaza down on 159th & Torrance… They had them in Pink and Yellow too! :)

  5. AnnDS says:

    Bonne Marie, was that sound I heard on your blog the sound of your glasses getting smushed?

  6. Lisa, Mike, Jack, Della says:

    Thank goodness you weren’t wearing them ;-)

  7. Bonne Marie says:

    The Sound: more like the WAV equivalent of *LOSER* !!! Just hit the F5 key on your computer keyboard to hear it again…

  8. Bridget says:

    Wow – that sound made me look elsewhere – in my cube farm I thought someone had passed some gas!!!

    This is clearly a sign from the gods that it’s time to look into Lasik! ;)

  10. Silvia says:

    Wow, that sucks about those glasses. Maybe work should pay for the new ones since their truck ran over them. Sneak ‘em on an expense report.
