It's time for another installment of our "Ask Jew or Not Jew" feature, where young readers write in for advice. Here's a letter we recently received.
Dear Jew or Not Jew, I just got prescribed glasses. They make me look like such a NERD! Girls will never talk to me... Please help!!! — Aaron Rubinstein, 13, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Who says looking like a nerd is so bad?
Look at actor Jeff Goldblum; whenever he puts on those thick black-rimmed glasses, he either figures out how to defeat dinosaurs ("Jurassic Park") or save the world ("Independence Day"). Take the glasses away, and he either mutates himself ("The Fly"), or stars in unwatchable dreck ("Holy Man").
As for girls never talking to you... well, Goldblum did get Geena Davis, but we're pretty sure he did not wear glasses back then. So... ummm... we'll get back to you on that one.
Yours in prescription eyewear,
Jew or Not Jew.
