Fighting onion tears

Fine Cooking Issue 08

After crying my way through all of those no-tears tricks for cutting onions, such as breathing only through my mouth or running cold water into the sink while chopping, my husband suggested goggles. I look a little silly in my Speedo swim goggles, but I wear them from the first slice of onion to the last and never shed a tear.
