The Three Little Aviators and the Big Bad Daily Usage.
on February 11, 2016
The red little aviator lasted me about 3 days. I took them with me around campus taking extra care as they were really cool and brand new. After having them with me for 3 days, they had developed some serious scratches. I tried rubbing the glass gently and "pop!" the shade fell off. And that was that.
The blue little aviator lasted me about 2 days. They were in a safe pouch in my bag for a few hours, then when I took them out they came out in 2 pieces. I discovered that the piece of metal that connected the actual shades to the bar that reaches behind your ear wasn't actually one piece. It was 2 pieces lightly glued together, and it broke with the light stresses of being in my bag, which my previous glasses had been able to handle for months. Then, as I was trying to see if I could glue it together myself, I guess my finger brushed the glass lightly, leading to the blue shade popping out. It was a tragic but kind of hilarious death to my 2nd favorite aviator.
The green little aviator was my favorite, so I kept it safe in my car. I figured without actually using it as I intended to (around campus), I wouldn't have to worry about them breaking. Then about a week after very very very very VERY light use (putting them on while driving, carefully setting away when not) I put them on and felt a sharp pain. The little rubber pad that rests on the bridge of your nose so that the sunglasses won't cut you... had unscrewed itself and fallen out. So I drove home squinting, with a lightly bleeding nose, pondering the short and tragic life of my three little aviators.
