Green Eyes

Sometimes I like to wear my Freshlook Dailies in green because it makes me look different. How many Asians do you normally see with green eyes? Perhaps I can pass off as an exotic HAPA...

My green contact lenses surely caught the attention of football players at practice this morning (although I'm really not supposed to attract their attention during their scrimmages). A football player walked over to the sidelines where I was standing and introduced himself.

"Dang! Are those your real eye colors?" he asked.

"No," I replied, "my eyes are really brown. I'm just wearing green contact lenses"

He wasn't half as interested in our conversation after I divulged this little snippet. But what do I care?


That doesn't bother me at all.

The green contacts aren't too bad - they are not extremely comfortable and they dry out faster than normal but you get used to them. Most people can't tell that I'm wearing green contacts unless they stand really close to me. I actually like the Freshlook in green better than the pure hazel since it provides a greater contrast for my eyes as well as a perfect compliment for red lipstick.
