Cheap Sunglasses

I was at the gas station yesterday, and I was filling my tank. While I was slowly going broke, I was pacing back and forth behind my vehicle, and I noticed a woman in a very short skirt, and she was checking the oil in her car.

There are some activities that women in short skirts should be encouraged to do, because it accentuates the backs of their thighs (as their skirt slides upwards), and this was one of them. It was compelling viewing, but the circumstances reminded me of one of the reasons I wear sunglasses.

When I was much younger, I was totally intimidated by a woman's eyes. I couldn't bring myself to look them in the eye, and it was difficult to talk to someone you couldn't look at. I was similarly intimidated at the prospect of looking at women, because I imagined myself in their place, with a guy looking at them.

I never completely got over that intimidation, but one thing that made it easier was wearing sunglasses. My thought here was that looking in someone's direction was not the same as staring -- What really bothered people was the piercing gaze of your eyes. With sunglasses, people can't be sure where you're looking, and so it offers some small comfort to those of us who occasionally like to gawk at the feminine scenery.

Now, having confessed my secret, let me point out that I don't make it a habit to oogle women. However, there are some sights that are begging to be seen, and I am sure that the women know what they're doing when they dress in a particular way.

So yes, I look. Sue me.

Sunglasses are great, I wear them often.

I think that it is a compliment when a guy stares at me. ...Long as he isn't Charles Manson..!

I certainly would mean it that way... the sunglasses are more for me to feel comfortable about it than to spare the recipient of the stares...

Today is a beautiful day in Anchorage, with temperatures in the 70's... so it is a particularly good people-watching day...
