Anyways, one of my students in my higher level classes, Danny Boy*, arrived to class looking real glum. The following dialogue ensued:
Teacher: Hey Danny Boy, what's wrong?
Danny Boy: My glasses broke today...so now I have to hold them--my frail arms hurt.
Teacher: That's heartbreaking. Tell you what, I'm going to fix your glasses.
Danny Boy: How, teacher? How?
Teacher: Watch and learn, kid-- watch and learn. Remember who you're talking to (I point to the home made toilet paper dispenser and the paper brush holder)...just call me Mr. Wizard.
*Danny Boy is an alias to prevent Daniel's identity...ummm....oops.
(The above dialogue has been...modified for entertainment purposes)
So, I proceeded to fix Danny Boy's glasses. I took some Scotch tape and measured the necessary distance around his head. I took two long strips and stuck them together to form a band. Once they reached the glasses, two small pieces of tape finished the job. The results are below:
Angle A, side view: notice how the band is esthetically pleasing...I would compare it to clear bra straps (did I just say that? oh yes I did!):
Angle B, rear view: notice the amazing quality of the strap...
Danny Boy: WOW, I can see again!
Teacher: You're welcome Danny Boy...now let's get back to our lesson on why Pepero and McCol should be a staple in our diets.
Danny Boy: (shedding tears) I...don't...know...how I can thank you, teacher!
Teacher: 100,000,000w in cash, left in a garbage bag downstairs by the bike shop should suffice. Deal, or no deal?
Danny Boy: Deal!
