On or about 09:28 PM 1/14/99 -0500, Daniel T. Burrows was caught in a dark
alley speaking these words:

My parents made sure of that... myopia runs in my family. 'Course, everyone
I know except my dad and brother gets those lame, wimpy plastic lenses...
me? tone-gray (changes with sunlight) *safety glass* lenses w/ coated
stainless steel frames.

The only friends I have who don't think I'm weird for my spectacle choice
are the ones who've asked me: "aren't you going to wear safety glasses
before you...???" ;-)

Very handy.

See ya (pun intended),
