I started wearing glasses in 7th grade. It sucked. I finally got contacts as a senior and I was so stoked because I could at last get some cool sunglasses. Vuarnets were the hot shit back then, especially in my SoCal cool guy influenced world. It's hard to imagine, but at that time, Oakley just made grips and goggles, no sunglasses yet. I never had real Vuarnets, but I did score some "Pho-nets" right away. I was picking up some fresh contacts today and looked at my new sunglasses, sitting on my seat, as if they were waiting for me to put them on... $4.99 Ray Ban Wayfarer knock-offs. Some things never change.
