Found Them

A Day in the Life4 Comments

Ever been looking for something for years and never found it? One mystery solved! My parents were cleaning out all my old stuff during their move and they found my original Oakley sunglasses! You might be saying so what — but you don’t understand — these were one of the first pairs of Oakleys out there. I bought them around 1986 (I think) at a specialty bike store. You didn’t get these kind of glasses at the mall. So I was almost a teenager and I came home in these $100 glasses. That was a lot of allowance but I had to have them. I don’t remember the dialog but I think my Dad thought I was nuts. $100 for sunglasses! In the words of the Fresh Prince, Parents just don’t understand. Oh wait, I am a parent now…
