Low Point

     Our most recent low point: being guests for dinner at some friends’ home, and having brought the hosts a gift. I had told Clare before we left: “Get a gift bag, and put in one of the new handmade soaps we just bought.”
     Just before we left, Clare plopped a gift bag by the door saying, “Got it!”
     When we presented the gift to the hostess, she opened it and I realized that Clare had gotten the used soap out of our bathroom.
     I blushed, and asked if it was used.  The hostess said, “Well, it is a little slippery!”
     We all had a good laugh.
