Who is that masked man

Here is how I buy new glasses.

Me: Show me the most durable frames you have.
Salesperson: These.
Me: I'll take those, pointing to the ones that look similar to my current ones.

Or maybe I should say here is how I used to buy frames. Not this time.

I was all set to do the usual, but the strong ones that looked like mine did not have rims on the bottom. I trust the manager at Target Optical who assured me of their durability but couldn't do it.

That left two other durable frames, both of which would be way different. One was a style I think of when I think beatnik, black plastic rims. The other pair was curved and I realty liked it. The manager said, I don't normally like those frames, but they looks really good on you.

It wasn't until my brother-in-law, who was the only one at home or work to remark on the change, called me Spider-Man that I realized why I like them: They totally remind me of a superhero mask.
