I lost my glasses while hiking last weekend, so I’m shamefully wearing my back-up pair from the late 1980s and 1990s. Yesterday, one of my eight-year-old students showed up early for class and said:
“I like your glasses.”
I was shocked.
“But they’re too big for my face. Are they retro? Is the style making a come-back?”
She shrugged, then sincerely added:
“They look like the glasses my grandpa used to wear.”
