Right now, I'm wearing the first pair of glasses I've paid for on my own. However, scattered in my apartment are two pairs of old glasses, both of them much larger, and clunky, and ugly. I keep them, like Templeton, both in case of breakage, and also as signposts of where I've been. In a few years, when they know more about the long-term effects, I'm going to look into LASIK, and try to leave a few more pieces of who I used to be behind. But I'll always keep a pair of glasses around.
