From time to time, a gentleman’s eyes may wander.

This is not to be taken as a sign of his character, but as an optic reflex that results in a momentary suspension of the higher faculties. Neither priests, eunuchs nor husbands are entirely immune. And all things considered, the eye is one of the less dangerous organs.

So let’s not embarrass anyone whose wife might be watching.

—R.B.
