WHO DO you think you're kidding?" my friend asked incredulously.

Ignoring her I continued to review my reflection in the mirror.

"It's a lime green tank top. You're in Lane Bryant trying on a lime green tank top in some pathetic attempt to recapture your youth," she continued. "You don't need new clothing, you need a support group."

And support undergarments, I muttered as I retreated into the dressing room.

"Once again you are completely overreacting. So your eye doctor said you needed reading glasses. You're 40. It happens," she called through the door.

They're not reading glasses, I reminded her. The doctor called them computer glasses.

"He only said that to stop you from crying and frightening his other patients," she said.

Slumping down on the dressing room floor, I realized she was right. They were reading glasses. Next visit, bifocals in large frames from the Sophia Loren collection with my initials in the corner of the lens. On a chain from my neck. A faux silver chain that will turn my neck green and make small children point and laugh as I .

"Stop it," cried a chorus of disembodied voices from the surrounding dressing rooms. "They're not reading glasses, they're computer glasses. We believe you."

I knew they'd see it my way, Glen Burnie.
