    New 1 On Me

    Let's play a little game.
    Alright everybody, I think I may have seen it all now. Just had an 80 yr old man come in and purchase non RX safety specs, with side shields......
    Can anyone guess the reason?

    Can anyone guess the reason?
    To protect against the loss of precious ocular fluids from communist infiltrators?

    The way you posted makes me think it can't be lawn care/ mowing. Animal related? Precocious puppy?

    That is a correct assumption! And not animal related.

    Luckily I was able to interpret this feeling correctly; loss of essence!

    It’s not sex. It’s not animal care. It’s not gardening. It’s not COVID.
    I can only guess that it has something to do with his bucket list. Perhaps the bubble bath soap drop in Ibiza?
    I bend light. That is what I do.

    OK, he ordered non-RX safety glasses to wear while he is eating, so as not to get food in his eyes!
    He must be 1 aggressive eater at 80 years old.
