We took our kids to Disneyland in April 2017. Their first trip. The excitement was palpable for the month leading up to the trip.
This trip was also going to feature a Toronto Blue Jays road game for me and our then-six-year-old son. He loved baseball. It was his passion then and remains his passion to this day.
This would be his second-ever MLB game. As excited as he was for Disneyland (very!), he might have been just as excited to go to a Toronto Blue Jays game.
Growing up, my parents were really good at sharing tips and advice.
One memorable piece of advice was: “Get that spaghetti out from between your toes.”
But, by far, the most common was: “Turn off the lights!”
My nose is still recovering from the overwhelming stench.
But, in a twist befitting Shakespeare, there’s more to this recent story about my nose-wrenching experience.
You see, the tragedy that befell my nostrils that day could have been averted. Easily.
Except, I only learned this last week.
