The new Mr. Magoo
I'm a nerd. I'm a geek. I'm a bookworm. I'm every kid who was teased in the playground, and had to have his older sister protect him. But now, I'm grown up.... I've grown out.... and I do porn. I've worn glasses since I was 14. Which never really bothered me, since I was pencil thin, and the smart kid in the family.... it was kinda expected that I'd be overlooked by the opposite sex, or even my own sexual counterparts. But somewhere along the way of fully becoming the adult intellectual, I discovered some sports that I was good at, and started working out. The buck-teeth got corrected by a dental surgeon, the glasses got replaced by contact lenses and the image of the nerd stopped looking back at me in the mirror. I miss him. He reminds me of who I am inside. So after many years of ignoring the geek, I decided to bring him back a bit. I hadn't replaced my glasses in six years, and I was due for some new frames. Found a cool place in SF that sells retro frames.... and presto. The Nerd is back! I've been wearing my glasses everyday now for the past couple of weeks.... and I like what I see, in all of its 20/20 glory.
