Glasses alter a face completely. People who wear glasses are often perceived as intelligent or sometimes as geeks. Luckily I have excellent vision so I do not need to wear them but I love dressing up in glasses. They transform me into a sultry secretary or a strict teacher. Here in Spain my friends say that for them when I wear glasses I look like the stereotypical English teacher.
Bearing this in mind, I bought these glasses for just 5 euros in an accessories shop just to give a friend with benefits of mine a “surprise” English lesson. He had arrived two minutes late and reacted completely normal to my ridiculous disguise. We worked through some very simple exercises about appearance using the verb to be: “he is tall, he is short, he is medium height”. My student was perfect up until the point where he told me that he hadn’t done his homework.
Needless to say, my student was punished…
I decided to get my glasses out again during this shoot with David Vega, and no he wasn’t the student in case you were wondering.
