This is the Sound of Settling

I noticed a few weeks ago that something funky had happened to Darwin's glass lenses... they were... flaking? What?

So to the optometrist and sure enough. His lenses. Were flaking. On this inside. By his good eye.

Holyfuckingshit.

So, we ordered new glasses in "lazer chrome" and yes, the name of the color is pure awesomenss and did help my decision making.

And? Because they are blue.

But!

Did the proper glasses come in?

Hells no.

So we got silver. On loan.

Because his glasses are flaking even more.

Holyfuckingshit.



Darwin loves the silver.

I'm finding it to be... just not quite right.

Yikes. I didn't even know lenses could flake. But he is rockin' those silver frames!

I think he looks cool in the silver. But the laser chrome will be better. (because I'm a blue person)

Hate to disagree, but I like the silver better than blue. :D Why not let him pick?

Oh my - how scary. I didn't know glass lenses could do that.Could you go with light weight polycarbonate?
