One with the ocean

I decided to leave all my work and worries behind me and head for the ocean for the day yesterday. The weather was spectacular. As I was sitting on the beach reading for leisure (new concept) and people-watching, I felt the urge to brave the waves. I grabbed my boogie board and off I went...a huge wave pounded me and OFF WENT MY GLASSES! Wow! I couldn't believe I got in the ocean with my glasses on!!! Oddly enough I wasn't hysterical at all. I walked around until I found a shop with reading glasses. They did fine for the reading I wanted to finish.
Today, my son found a place in town that was open AND that could have my new glasses ready TODAY! When i told the salesperson my story, she said, " I'm going to have to give you a 2 for 1 special. Do you want a spare pair?" I asked about prescription sunglasses and she was happy to oblige! A few hours later, I walked out of there looking pretty darn good with my new shades! Okay, it wasn't plan A, but it came in a close second!!!
I may just have to remain calm every time something crazy happens to me!
