Bright Light!

Since were going to be friends I thought I should share. I don't like light. Not in a freakish way...but florescent, first step out of the apartment, sun shining straight at me light. So I'm married to sun glasses, even been known to wear them at home. And no, I am not wearing them in doors because I think I'm too cool...but the shades, well they're cool. Too many to chose from and the worst of it is...my glasses broke! ...isn't Audrey always a beauty.

Now for just a little education on sunglasses...trust me you might find it entertaining, if not, I tried.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sunglasses or sun glasses are a form of protective eyewear that usually enclose or protect the eye pupil in order to prevent strong light, ultraviolet (UV) rays, and increasingly, blue light ("blue blocking") from penetrating. They can sometimes also function as a visual aid, as variously termed spectacles or glasses exist which feature lenses that are colored, polarized or darkened. In the early 20th century they were also known as sun cheaters (cheaters being an American slang term for glasses).[1]

Many people find direct sunlight too bright for comfort. During outdoor activities, the human eye can receive more light than usual. Healthcare professionals recommend eye protection whenever outside to protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation and blue light, which can cause several serious eye problems. Sunglasses have long been associated with celebrities and film actors primarily from a desire to hide or mask their identity. Since the 1940s sunglasses have been popular as a fashion accessory, especially on the beach.
