If you have allergies, you don't need me to tell you.
Watery eyes season has arrived.
It's a time of year when some of us look like we are overcome with emotion, even though it's really just pollen. I have written about this before.
Of course, spring isn't the only time you can misread someone's eyes.
On my first real take-the-car date as a high school kid, I took a girl named Susan Morgan to see a movie called “Little Big Man.”
Things seemed to be going OK. But at some point during the movie, I looked over at Susan and she seemed to be crying. Good grief, I thought. What have I done to offend or disappoint her?
Eventually, I figured out that she was fine. I was just seeing a weird reflection on her eyes there in the darkened theater — something to do with the light bouncing off the big screen and the natural glistening of the eyes.
Yes, that was a relief.
A case can be made that going to see a movie makes a lousy first date. It really reduces your interaction time, after all.
But if the film is good and your date isn't crying, it can turn out all right.
