Today in 1200 in China some one, allegedly, invented sunglasses! (It’s amazing what stuff The Internet knows….)
It’s probably not true and was written by the same kind of idiot who suggests that God drew the design for an eyeball on a piece of paper and then made it in a little watchmaker shop in Heaven but, hey, for today – let’s presume this is true. (The sunglasses bit, not the mad religious crackpot bit.)
After all sunglasses must have been invented on one day sometime or another so let’s just jump on board the 1st July 1200 AD train. Why? Well – here’s a great reason – let’s drink some wine today to celebrate this remarkable multi functional invention which has allowed us to look super cool for the opposite sex outside cosmopolitan wine bars, fade into the background when the boss passes by on social occasions and also to cover up our morning after the night before looks when we look like death warmed up.
They are almost James Bond style things with no limits to the things they help you achieve – a bit like wine.
Just remember, as a wise man once said: “Only two kinds of people wear sunglasses indoors – blind people and assholes.”
Also a wine quote: “Wine is sunlight held together by water.” Galileo Galilei.
