Going Out Glasses

I was cleaning out my room the other day, as my mom jumps on me to do every few summers or so, and found one of my favorite cards that I had long forgotten about. I used to work at the Fairfax Movie Theater when I was fifteen, and one day an elderly woman came in asking if we had found a pair of glasses she’d left behind. We checked all over the theater to no avail, but later received this extremely earnest and oddly descriptive note in the mail:

“Dear Theater Staff:

Thank you so much for helping us search for my husband’s “Going Out” Glasses. The mystery was solved today when we drove our other car (16-year-old Volvo wagon) which needed gas—and there were the G.O.G. How happy we are! We drove his 12-year-old Camry to your theater and I thought he’d taken the specs then. Sorry I have wasted your time. Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year,

Robin and Diane”

Did I keep the note because it’s so heartwarming? Or because it contains hilariously detailed references to cars and a proper noun (and acronym!) for a pair of spectacles? I’ll let you be the judge of that :)
