Do you ever imagine yourself invisible?
Not as quite literally as the invisibility cloak, but more when you put a pair of sunglasses on, you almost forget that everyone can still see you?
I do this. Often. I leave my house, put on my shades (which are not giant oversized black glasses you may have spotted on Paris Hilton in the earls 00’s – but rather an equally as noticeable pair of clear rimmed-pink lensed oval shaped glasses) with the thought that JUST by putting them on, no one will notice me. It’s strange right?
Sure, I’m hiding my eyes – but everyone, from the stranger getting his coffee to the person I’m trying to not to see, can definitely, 100% , no ifs-ands-or-buts about it – see me. So I just wonder, what is it about sunglasses that makes us feel like we’re able to hide, openly, from the world? And why? Have we become that afraid of actual human interaction ?
