My six-year-old son recently found out he’ll wear glasses. Our household champions nerd culture. It was a cause for celebration. He was thrilled to pick his first pair. In true nerd fashion, his first pair is black rimmed with square frames. We even made a dorky song, helping him keep his new pair safe. We sing in unison.
“Where do your glasses go? Face or Case!”
I try not to spoil wins for my children. The cup of heart ache will soon be overflowing, middle school is in the near distance. Anyone who wears glasses has experienced the aggravation of slippage. Look down, glasses slip.
Death, taxes, and slippage are things we can all bank on. As a Zakaria, my son may add sweating to his list of things he inherited from his Pap… An inconvenient truth as I type this, Saint Augustine is a balmy 83f.
I mention all of this as the catalyst for my recent purchase of Nerd Wax
. Nerd Wax
is one of the things you never knew you needed until you try. Nerd Wax
creates a thin layer of friction between your specs and skin. Glasses stay put. Nerd Wax
uses Organic and Cosmetic grade ingredients. The video from their site boasts, a single stick may do ya for 6-8 months but may vary on how much you apply.
For now, I’m able to cross slippage off the list of annoying things for my son to battle. His new glasses look amazing, and they stay put. Check out Nerd Wax
