Left at the Laugh

I was temporarily lost and late for a very important dinner function where I was supposed to meet my wife. I had followed her directions exactly. She told me to take the second left. After much frustration and some wandering, it became apparent that I should have been directed to take a left at the second traffic light. I was cranky with hunger and starved for justice at the indignity I had suffered. I ignored Ajahn Brahm’s wise counsel to laugh at mistakes, especially ones as understandable and insignificant as this one. I should take a lesson from my wife. I am her biggest mistake and she laughs it off every day.
