Short and Sweet #15: Passes and Glasses

Men seldom make passes / At girls who wear glasses, was a couplet made famous by Dorothy Rothschild Parker.

Parker, a witty poet, short story writer and screenwriter of, A Star is Born, was born on this day in 1893.

Once on the editorial staff of Vogue, a critic for Vanity Fair, she served the longest as a contributing writer for The New Yorker.

On two other notes:

The 1976 remake of A Star is Born, is one of my FAVORITE movies, and features one of my FAVORITE vocalists and actors, Barbara Streisand. Ive always wanted to see her perform live.

And I will keep my glasses handy for those guys who shouldnt even try. The only pass I want from Jeromey Rome types is for them to pass me by.

Have a Happy Monday
