My Easy World glasses

| | Comments (0)

I've been wanting to get new glasses for quite awhile, but have been putting it off. Though I really loved everything about my purple frames (pictured just below), lately, they had started to grab my hair and if I wasn't extremely careful, it would break it off. Very, very annoying, and a constant invitation out of Easy World. That, plus my vanity (wanting to look current), gave me the impetus to get new frames, even though when I went and had my eyes examined a couple of weeks ago, my prescription had not changed. Here's me in 2005 in the old purple glasses:

I kind of dreaded going to get them because the LensCrafters with the best selection in the area is ensconced in Cherry Creek Mall, and a long walk from the closest mall entrance. I was also hesitant because my experience with the mall is that Christmas shopping season means it's almost impossible to find a close-in parking spot--even a handicapped spot. It's amazing how your life changes when you have mobility issues. So I had to wait and save up some knee power before I could entertain the notion of going to get new glasses!

But yesterday, I received the inspiration that it was time, with the energy to back it up. Because the store had moved about a year or two ago, I thought to ask them if they were still in the same place, just in case, and where the closest parking place was. In my conversation with the clerk, I found out that it would probably be easiest to park at the entrance to Nordstrom and walk through the store (Nordstrom had just recently opened there in place of a failed Lord & Taylor that had been closed for a few years, so that wasn't an option before) and out the entrance to the mall and I'd be almost there. Still didn't sound very close, but, I was hoping, better. I went, but not before invoking Easy World. I knew it was the only way I was going to survive what I was expecting to be at least a moderate ordeal. I felt immediately serene upon choosing an Easy World experience, and even downright jolly about my expedition! As it turns out, in Easy World, there are lots of empty parking spaces within just a few feet of the Nordstrom entrance. And when I walked through the door, I could see Lenscrafters through the exit into the mall, just diagonally across the store--a much more manageable walk than the last time I had gone to get glasses, and a fun walk, too, with all the pretty stuff to look at!

When I entered LensCrafters, there was a bit of a line waiting at the desk for help, and just as I was starting to be concerned about having enough "stand-up" in me to make it, the lady in front of me graciously offered to let me go ahead of her as she was there to make a return.

I was able to find my new glasses frames in short order (that is quite a feat!), and then left to go get some errands done, returning to pick them up short while later. Even going back to the mall at 5:00 pm was effortless! Interestingly, Denver's rush hour was uncharacteristically light, and though the mall was hardly deserted, it was far less busy than it had been earlier in the afternoon. It was all so darned easy. Even my knees cooperated throughout the 2 trips in and out of the mall and on the other errands I did!

I was kind of wondering as I left the store with my new specs if I had made the right choice--I knew Rick would tell me--but I didn't have to wait that long. I knew I had chosen the right ones when a fashionable clerk in Nordstrom (who had on very cool glasses herself) stopped me, not even a minute after I had wondered about it, to tell me how great my glasses were!

When I got home, Rick and I had the same idea for dinner in mind: to have sushi delivered, so we called in our order, and it was at our house in just 25 minutes and was delicious! (I'm still marveling over how fast it arrived--we've waited far longer for sushi when we've dined in sushi restaurants!)

Have I mentioned lately how much I love, love, LOVE Easy World?! If you have not yet discovered the magic of simply saying "I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy," what are you waiting for?!

So here I am last night in my new Easy World glasses (and my recent haircut). What you can't see from the photo is that the inner rims are bright blue and transparent, so depending on the angle of the light, they interact with the beveled edge of the lenses and flash blue (not as tacky as it sounds!). They're not purple, but just my style nonetheless. And they don't pull my hair, which is huge! (Is that the happy face of a woman who spent the day in Easy World or what?!)
