Friends who wear glasses-- not grab them when you're going to the movies, or slip them on for a different look; the ones who need them to recognize your own children-- have you had any success with shopping online (or anywhere not your optometrist's office) for glasses?

God I hate Hannah.
She continues to be a hot mess express. Your turn is over, girl! This is dumb.
Is it weird that I keep thinking about the huge insurance policy they must need if he's going to keep flying them all over the place? 😁
