Comments: I Refuse to Pay $240 for Sunglasses

Dear Agent Smith:
It's been a long time since the first movie, so I understand that you confused my name.

Anyway.

Gee, that sounds like a swell deal. But how about this? I split the cost with you for the sunglasses. You post a picture of yourself in said glasses admiting that Ben Kepple is just your cover identity. And then you give me my phone call. I know my rights.

You know where to find me... for the time being.

Regards,
Mr. Anderson

And remember, there is no spoon...

It ain't the glasses, it's the moves that make the Agent. Anyone can blow half a week's take-home on a fashion accessory, but a REAL agent makes it look good (and Baaad) whether he's wearing the authentic item or making do with chintzola.

I hear the same arguments from beginning guitarists who've gotta have that sweet Strat so they can play better, and from sportbike riders who've gotta have that sweet new 600 so they ride better. My advice is you buy the cheapos and work on your Agent skills with those. Then if you ever DO upgrade to the real deal, your Kung Fu will be better than those other agents who started at the top.

Hmmm. Let me impart to you a little taste of the Allison Wisdom:

The only way to properly rationalize spending $240 on a pair of sunglasses--and that is shocking--is to make certain you get your money's worth out of them. Wear them on sunny days, of course. And cloudy days, and at night, and in your apartment, at work, in the shower, to bed,...

In fact, never let people see your eyes ever again.
