Perhaps some of you can enlighten me as to some legitimate reasons there is a need to wear sunglasses indoors. I don't think she is blind as she has no cane, no working dog and she doesn't move about in a tentative manner.
I wear sunglasses indoors on occasion. Some of the occasions are:
- If I'm in a period of my life when I have taken on WAY too much, I want to reduce social interaction. If people can't see my eyes and make eye contact, I'm less likely to be drawn into a conversation. I love conversation, so they are always time-consumer.
- I'm having yet another steenking plugged sebacious gland in an eyelid and my eyes are scary red and puffy and I don't want to gross people out
- I had a very long night (I'm in the rock and roll business, so it happens - without booze) and my eyes just don't want to deal with the light.
I never wear baseball caps, so can't speak to that.
But - two of the lady rockers I know wear hats indoors all the time - fuzzy knit caps or baseball hats...they claim they're cold most of the time and keeping their heads warm helps a lot.
Now, here's the question I'd be asking if I were you:
"How did it become my business how someone else, with whom I don't have a relationship, chooses to dress?"
