We were reminded of the profundity of this concept recently, when we were lucky enough to travel to Costa Rica for our nephew’s wedding. Afterward we had a bit of an adventure.
In the middle of our trip we had a “difficulty.” When Allen was in the ocean Wendy was accosted by a hooligan on the beach who knocked her off her chair and stole all of our belongings, including the Allen’s driving glasses. (Unable to wear bifocals, he had one pair for distance and one for close-up and reading.) His reading glasses were fortunately not stolen because they were not in the beach bag but perched safely inside his hat.
