The two ladies admired my umbrella, and one of them said to the other, “See, I could be on an island in Croatia right now.” The other one, “Oh, that would be just wonderful. But we are stuck here.” Me, “Ladies, Croatia is wonderful but don’t forget to appreciate what you have right now here in LA. Most buildings in Croatia have no AC, and in some areas there are vicious, attack mosquito that sting you day and night. We don’t have that here in LA. There’s always two sides to the story. Dreaming about a place is definitely more perfect than being in a place.” The grass is not always greener on the other side of the sea even though it might look like that on a postcard.
