Remember J Crew's ad campaign where everyone had on oversized and slightly awkward glasses? Well, I finally decided to jump on the band wagon just in time for back to school. I still like to pretend I go back to school every fall which necessitates a new wardrobe. So last Friday I was perusing** the jcrew.com sale section, when I got completely distracted with all the models wearing nerd glasses. I knew exactly who I needed to turn to to get more info.
Here's how it played out:
me: are nerd glasses really cool?
me: do you have some?
lisa: not yet
me: where do you get them?
lisa: ryan found some at urban outfitters
me: wait, ryan's more hip than us?
The hunt was on, even an oppressive heatwave didn't slow us down. Within 24 hours we both had nerd glasses.
**My sister just got back in town, and I'm already smarter.
I want you to be smarter too.
Did you know that peruse means to review in detail??
I thought it meant just to skim something.
