Need Goggles

Some people wear fear goggles or put on beer goggles…one of these is more fun than the other but both do the same thing, they skew what the person sees and how they interpret what they are seeing.  Beer goggles make everything funnier, people prettier, and the person wearing them seem more intelligent and the life of the party. … Details
