HERE IS A QUESTION I am pondering, Dear Reader: How many persons who are already well along in years would be able to toss out, to anyone who asked, the EXACT date upon which their mother began wearing bifocals?
Have you ever pondered this, Reader Dear? Hmmm?
I'm pondering if you ever even pondered this--"Now WHEN was it Mom started wearing bifocals?!"
Methinks you need something to ponder, Reader Dear! Can you venture a guess what is in this long, skinny box that the postman dropped off at my door today?
Go ahead. Don't be shy, Viewer Dear. Take a guess.
(Why, yes. Of course. I will show you tomorrow,
even if you don't [sob] take a stab.)
