Short blurb on the storyCynical Mitch had just wanted to relax at the bar after a hard day, when his co-worker Bob showed up. Bob won his way into the booth with an offered beer, but then he started confessing all kinds of strange things. When Bob brought out eyeglasses to prove his out-of-this-world story, things really became odd. Mitch would never see the world the same way again. 

A humorous Science-Fiction short story.
