I have dark brown eyes, and perfect vision, but a few years ago, I had some disposible income so I got blue contacts.
They had no correction, they just changed my eye color.
One morning driving home from a long nights work, I was T-boned in an intersection a block from the police station.
As I was disintangling myself, a man comes up to me and officiously tells me he’s a police detective “Are you al…boy, your eyes are blue!” It made them worth every cent. ( yes, I went out with him )
Unfortunately, about a year later, I went to visit my son. He met me at the airport, as he walked up to me, before hello, or I love you or anything else, he said, “I hate 'em get rid of them.”
When I got home from vacation they were mysteriously missing. :dubious:
