I missed another birthday-again. This time, I had a good excuse, we had problems with our new cell phone, and somehow lost reoccurring dates (like birthdays) from our calendar.
Of course, I should admit that I hardly ever look at the calendar and an excuse is, after all, just an excuse.
Thinking about all this, it occurred to me that the technology excuse is hardly new and I decided to trace its history. Our protagonist shows that excuses, and glasses, have been with us since the dawn of time.
