Aglet Appreciation

I want us to take a moment to appreciate the aglet.  You know, that thing at the end of
your shoelace that keeps it from unraveling.  That's an aglet.  Not many people know that's the name of it.  For a long time I used to just call it 'the piece of plastic at the end of my shoelace' like everyone else.

However, thanks to one of my favorite cartoons, Phineas and Ferb, I know the proper name of it.

And now you know too (if you didn't before).
