Let’s just say that I came into the relationship with a lot of baggage. I was very aware of how much people liked my suitcases, but I don’t think Suzette really understood until we went to Bora Bora on our honeymoon.
We walked off the airplane and stacked the luggage on the boat dock waiting for our boat to take us to our overwater love shack, which had a glass top on the coffee table that you could take off to feed the lighted area of fish at night. There were also steps off the back deck into the crystal clear 16-shades-of-blue water. In other words, go on a honeymoon or anniversary there. Anyways, everyone was staring at the leather, trying not to look like they were, but I kept on catching them.
As everyone was waiting for their boats to arrive to take them to their resorts, someone finally asked, “Excuse me sir, where’d you get that luggage? It’s gorgeous”. Suddenly a whole lot of people turned their bodies around and stared, waiting for an answer. Let’s just say that I ran out of business cards and pretty much paid for our honeymoon with all of the luggage sales over the next couple of months.
