Me and retail outlets? We’ve had some pretty intimate times together.
I used to date a guy who asked me out after he spotted me in a music store.
And one time I burst out of a pair of jeans with such force that the button blew off across the changing room, breaking my dignity and, I swear, the laws of physics.
But until now I’d never discussed being naked with a sales assistant.
If you’re wondering how this wild seduction came about, then behave, people. It’s not what you think.

My undressing happened because I belong to a tribe of people known as put-stuff-off-ers.
We’re excellent at getting things done… if we actually start our tasks. It’s just that it takes us a while when there are other interesting things to do, such as snacking.
In the six months since I arrived in Australia from the UK I’ve made some achievements – namely, locating a tea-bag stockist – but I had not found an optometrist. Mainly because there wasn’t one in the teashop.
But hearing about one of Specsavers’ latest initiatives forced me to get my act together. I was almost at the end of my contact lens stash (and my glasses and I stopped being live-in lovers years ago).
This is what I learned when I went into the store and bared all…
1. Specsavers offers nudity you’ll like.
We all know bad nakedness: it’s the men’s swimming briefs that take the word ‘brief’ too literally. This is good nakedness – which refers to being free (ie naked) from your glasses. Specsavers now offers a new online e-tailor for contact lenses. The same principles used in online clothes shopping apply: select your style, your size and how often you want to receive them, then check out. Your lenses arrive in days at a location of your choice. And, even better, you already know they’ll suit you.
