Sunglasses Part Deux
Last year I wrote about how I hate shopping for sunglasses and was very relieved to have finally bought a satisfactory pair. I’ve had those same sunglasses ever since then and have been happy with them. [Pause.] Until I recently dropped them on the ground and a lens popped out. I tried to put the lens back in, but it just wasn’t happening. I hadn’t spent much on these sunglasses but it was still disappointing to damage them.
Luckily, I had seen that the same sunglasses were still at the store that I’d initially bought them at. When I saw them about a month ago, I considered getting another pair as a backup but decided against it. At the time I thought my sunglasses were fine and I didn’t really need another pair exactly like it. I guess hindsight is 20-20. [Sigh.]
Well, now I did want a pair exactly like it. Why try to find something better when what I had was working well? I didn’t want to indefinitely search for a new pair of sunglasses that might be better than the last pair (because the odds were against me that I’d find something anytime soon). So I happily bought the exact same pair of sunglasses. Hopefully these new sunglasses will last as long (or longer) than the last pair.
