    You might look like you are wearing goggles when you goggle at something

    On vocabulary.com, it says:

    goggle
    When you goggle, you stare with wide-open bug eyes. You might goggle at a monkey riding a unicycle down the main street of your town.
    You may have heard of goggles — those large, plastic glasses that you use to protect your eyes while you are skiing or using a blowtorch. You might look like you are wearing goggles when you goggle at something. If you are looking for a new way to say "What are you looking at?!" Try: "What are you goggling at?!"
    ----
    I don't understand why you might look like you are wearing goggles (i.e. wearing glasses?) when you goggle at something.

    Could you please help me?
    Thanks!

    PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.

    Re: You might look like you are wearing goggles when you goggle at something

    It's a mystery to me but then I've never used "goggle" as a verb!

    (In your last line, you put "I also posted the same question on this" but there was no hyperlink to take us to the other place you posted it.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
