The Archer meets eyeglasses, Part II

So I learned an interesting thing about wearing glasses today that never occurred to me before. I can only recount the verbatim for theological reflect:

The names and faces have not been changed to protect no one.

Location: Somewhere on the University of Nebraska campus
Campus Religious Workers meeting.

Archer (drinking hot coffee): Argh! I can't see!
Archer's boss: That's because your glasses are fogged up.

FYI...who knew hot coffee fogged up glasses?

Yes, welcome to the club. You are lucky it's September... when summer returns you will enjoy walking out of an air-conditioned building into the hot, humid air, and your glasses immediately becoming opaque. It's one of the VERY few things that make me wonder if contacts are worth it.

Oh joy. I can't wait for what other horrors await me.

But I agree, I can't think of too many reasons why I would want to wear contacts. They should dreadful. I mean, pieces of plastic floating around your eyeballs? Nasty!

also, in winter if you walk into a warmer, humid place: fogging.

actually, any time there's a drastic temperature and humidity change, you can expect some fogging.

OH! and if you have distance vision issues or need to wear glasses while driving or walking around outside, I *highly* recommend prescription sunglasses. It turns out to be awfully nice to be able to see and not be blinded by the sun (or vice versa).

Also good to know...
