We went to a birthday party for one of our neighbors last night. Sooner or later at parties, people around me start telling me their divorce trainwreck stories.
One woman told me about how she and her ex fought over who would get the two kayaks.
“Why didn’t you take one and let your ex take one?” I asked.
“They were a matched pair.”
“ So,” I said, “Just buy another matched pair.”
“They were hand-made and unique.”
It ended up that the husband bought the wife’s kayak for $750.
