You know, sometimes it is better to simply be discreet than to try to 
make excuses. My morning breakfast tea is a public safety measure. 
But I drink it only in my camp and usually before I'm suitable for 
polite company. But you won't find me coming up with some convoluted 
explanation of why/how an early 15th c French woman has a pot of 
Camellia sinensis in her kitchen. Talking about how it was or wasn't 
period wouldn't be... very period, would it? I kind of feel the same 
way about glasses. Better to simply ignore their presence, and 'not see' them.
