Once upon a time there were two lovers named Gear and Wing that lived in a small suburb outside of a large city. They had a garden where they grew beans from Wing’s grandmother’s garden. The plants circled their house in the summer. Wing propped the vines up with twine and bamboo stakes. One day Wing decided to go into the city to get some fertilizer for the tomato plants. On her way home she saw a girl on the side of the road with a box that said free kittens. Wing pulled her car over to look at the kittens. One of the kittens was a calico with brown eyes that looked exactly like Gear’s eyes. Wing gasped. The eyes were identical!
Wing called Gear on her phone and told him about the cat, but Gear didn’t want her to bring it home. Wing didn’t listen to Gear and brought the cat home anyway. As Wing got closer and closer, Gear’s vision got dimmer and dimmer. Gear could feel his eyes receding into his skull. By the time Wing got home his eyes were just black sunken holes in his face. Wing brought the cat inside the house and Gear could see himself from the perspective of the cat. The cat really did have Gear’s eyes. They named the cat Goggles.
It took some getting used to. Gear would do the dishes with Goggles on his head. Gear found that he could even drive their old truck with Goggles on the dashboard. One day he was driving into town and he slid into the ditch and ran into a fencepost because Goggles slid off and fell onto the floorboards. Gear got a small patch of carpet for the dashboard and glued it down so that Goggles wouldn’t slide off. Wing, Gear and Goggles drove all over in the truck and lived happily ever after.goggles
