Thursday January 8th

The comic:

Pluggers read?

Pluggers can read and use the toilet? (Cheap shot, I know.)

I was able to salvage something yesterday (Pluggers have shitty friends but won't do anything to change the situation because they're Pluggers), but this.


It's better to leave glasses on the frickin toilet rather than grab them on your way in? THOSE GO ON YOUR FACE!

Can't you at least put them on the sink?

I just... maybe it's because I don't wear reading glasses, I wear mine all the time, I never get these reading glasses things. I know they're code for "old," but most things are in this thing.

And what is the purpose of having that many reading glasses? I do know why you would have more than one, but since when do Pluggers, well, care that much about being prepared.

Oh, I just got it.

"Being prepared" = "boy scouts" = "American Institution"

And Pluggers consider themselves part of American Institutions.

Especially those that were good Back Then, before things got all weird.

Ok, I'm reaching.

Got anything better, aside from a cheap shot at the contributor's first name?

Amazingly, I have a friend who just last night confessed to me that he keeps a set of reading glasses in his bathroom so he can read the Wall Street Journal.

word verification: spilah - a plugger with incontinence issues.

I think.

my dad has at least 4 pairs of reading glasses. mostly because he forgets where he puts them or because my mom steals them and leaves them where ever she goes with them. generally he does not leave them in the bathroom.

I forgot where I put my glasses a few days ago, xy, and had the whole family searching for them. Turned out I never took them off and they were in the dark blanket. My sister (who has no vision problems) found them.

I just can't wrap my mind around having multiples, or not freaking when you can't find them, because of the expense and all...

But reading glasses are different. I just keep forgetting that.

xy said...

yeah, i used to have glasses and i don't really understand how my parents forget where they are. if you put them in the same place everytime you take them off, guess what? you can find them everytime you want them. but my parents don't get this concept for some reason.
