    Between fifth grade and some years after graduating high school, I never wore contact lenses when I was sheepish about wearing glasses.

    Blood shot and yellow striped? He didn’t want the eye of the tiger? Hobbes must be disappointed.

    I saw some contacts that gave you nuclear-warning signs on your irises. Don’t know if that’s “cool” or just…odd.

    I wish I’d had a stream to chuck things into close enough to walk to when I was a kid. Though I ‘spect my parents were glad we only had traffic, steep hills, bicycles, skates and household implements to damage ourselves. Oh, and a swing set that wasn’t anchored down. That was VERY cool, if you didn’t lose a tooth.

    As for contacts, those kinds might look cool, but they are a PAIN to see out of, or remove if you don’t like “touching your eye”… ;-)

    Protesting and destroying property seems “cool.” Being a responsible adult with a job and having to pay for the damages is not.

    I was once enchanted, totally spellbound, instantly in love, with a girl wearing dark blue contacts. My wife was not amused.

    There are people who do this sort of thing with contacts. Should have listened to Watterson.

    people ONLY grow up IF they have no idea what’s cool – those who know what’s cool never make it to grown-up. If you are not grown-up by 50 you just don’t have to grow up.

    Don’t fret about it, Calvin. For your age group, with or without lens, you were cool before being cool was cool.

    Now you just need to have Hobbes help you with some good lines to use on the Little Ladies who THINK they want a little guy with a blood red one and the other yellow striped.

    No worries Calvin. Before you know it you’ll be old enough to get some tattoos and not to long after that you will be old enough to regret it.

    I was having a conversation with an acquaintance and thinking to my introvert self that I should look people in the eye when I talk to them. I was in the middle of a comment when I noticed that she had one blue eye and one brown eye. I immediately forgot what I was saying and have tried to avoid looking people in the eye ever since.

    Was pondering that idea the other night. At some point in our lives we wake up and decide we are “grown up” able to run the world and reproduce. It is like an overnight thing. One night we are on a pub crawl and the next we are climbing the latter. Then I thought, Humm the process is not working out too well.

    I was binge-watching a TV show Monday and an actress was portraying her character’s grand-daughter and they had changed her hair color and length and she was wearing contact lenses that were of a different color as well. I did not recognize her until she spoke. The 50 year difference in fashion also helped.

    Colored contacts aren’t really that comfortable anyway. You’re better off.

    I met a woman in New York once who had those back when they were all the rage, and frankly, it looked a tad bit creepy.
