Costco wasn't quite as crazy as expected.I went in there to get my specs re-fitted and miraculously managed to get in and out in fifteen minutes. Have a sneaking suspicion going at 4:45 and not buying anything had a lot to do with that. That place is going to be a madhouse for the next month or so, until the buy in bulk holiday party crowd wears itself out. Makes me kind of happy I don't have enough friends to justify either a party or a membership.
On a very loosely related note, have you ever taken the time to look at the tools they use to adjust a pair of glasses? The guy had the gnarliest assortment of pliers I've seen outside of a home improvement store. If I were making a scary movie I'd seriously consider using those, mixed in with a few dental tools, for set dressing. Voila. Sheer terror.
