Yeah like I don't have much of a frame for me without glasses.

Positively awful. She looks like an evil librarian from a 90s kids show. The suggestion of calling her dad for the difference expands her options quite nicely, though.

Oh dear gods no. Please someone remove those from her face, immediately.

Something somewhere in between the two, or sparkly with a different shape (mine are sparkly).

I like those. They looks well on her. Match her eyes and face very well.

I wonder how many different glasses Willis had to draw on her face before betting on this one.

Those glasses do look nice on her.

I mean.

Walky ain't wrong.

(Also, how spicy were those nugs if the smell is on Sarah's clothes? Or is she just a messy eater?)

I think it's more like Walky is good at smelling that kind of food.

Goddammit Joyce grow the fuck up already, it's just some glasses. You've been fine with changing clothing styles before, what on earth is so terrible about this? You are not so baby that you'd think no one will think about anythingin regards to you other than the glasses just because of this.

Granting that I was a lot younger than her when I first needed glasses (I was 8 or so), but it's amazing to me that her vanity and fear of change is overriding the fact that, you know, she can fucking see again. I remember putting the glasses on for the first time and being like "This is awesome!"

ALSO: My wanting to punch Walky like 99% of the time has not subsided, if you were curious.

And, in this one specific instance, it's the fact that he's right.

I'd have thought that the obvious answer here is "this was a medical specialist giving me advice for the good of my health". But, meh, who cares about medical experts?

Also, if her vision is actually as bad as was implied by the start of this storyline, there's the fact that "When she doesn't need them" is going to be "pretty much never", speaking from experience with extreme nearsightedness.
