Do you see what I see?

Last week, I got new glasses. Nothing special, of course, but the kind of new thing that you wear self-consciously, totally aware of their newness while at the same time totally aware of the fact that no one else even notices.

I share an office with a guy at work, where we sit facing each other. We occasionally have those workplace exchanges that everyone has, but seeing only each other's eyes and noses above our monitors.

It was during one of these exchanges that I noticed he has the exact same glasses that I do. It's like that old cliche of people showing up at a party wearing the same outfit, except I get to experience it every day.

You are right! I didn't notice your new glasses. They must look good on you because if they didn't I would have noticed. :)
