For the past several days my wife and I (and 4 dogs) have been camping out on Maine's Southern coast in our pimped out Travel Trailer. We love it here and always wish we could stay longer. Anyways we were at the beach today and my wife was going to go out and catch some waves (boogie boarding). She typically wears some old Adidas glasses for this but today she decided to wear a pair of Oakleys I bought her some time ago. They were Fives 2.0 Polished root beer with Gold Iridium (if I remember correctly). To cut a long story short.... I was finishing up my beer and I told her I would be right out. I was standing at the shoreline and this "rogue" wave caught her and took her under. She came up without the sunglasses. She immediately reached for them and motioned to me that " they were gone". I told her not to worry and I would get her a new pair but that was not good enough. She kept me going toe that I said to her before she went in was "don't lose them they are vintage". Whether they are vintage or not does not matter at this point. I still said it.... And it still resonates with her. Anyways they are just sunglasses and I wish I never said they were "vintage". She is really torn up about it simply because she knows I obsess about these things. Anyways, I just though I would pass this short story along.
