What's with Eugene and those
thick and hideous glasses? -Submitted by Connie's Jogging Suit
Miss Connie's Suit, it's ironic
that you would ask such a random question because you're pretty
thick and hideous yourself (no offense)! Why Connie would want to
wear you every day is beyond me. Is there more than one of you or
does Connie wash the same pair of you every day after working at

the summer months or is she one of those rare humans that never
As for Eugene's "thick and hideous"
glasses, I'd appreciate if you'd call them what they really are. For
your information, they're called "coke bottle glasses." For someone
who graces Adventures in Odyssey with your presence so

responsibility within those cotton threads.
Eugene's coke bottle glasses make
Eugene what he is: a nerd with red hair. Adventures in Odyssey

"thick and hideous, but those are what keep him from seeing
incorrectly and running into you. Miss Suit, next time think about
it before you go weaving a cobweb for yourself to get stuck in.
