I have decided I need to get myself some new glasses (funny how mistaking one's friends child for one's own child brings one to that conclusion) so headed off to New Plymouth this afternoon to chose a pair. The lovely assistant told me I had a petite face (nothing like a bit of flattery to ease the pain of the cost of these specs) and would need to find a smaller frame to suit. We spent 10 minutes trying on green frames (not me), tortiseshell frames (when I'm 80), frames with holes in the sides (no words needed) then she told me we should move to the petite frames section - "you have a section for petite faced people like me?" I asked, "yes" she replied "we call it the kids section". I had no response to that!!!
BTW - I did find myself some frames...from the kids section!
