maybe don’t go in the ocean, just to be safe

I am very happy to report that Rhys is back in Canada from his Jaimacan holiday safe! Just in case you were wondering. And his cameras are safe too. Phew.

Last summer Rhys traveled to Costa Rica for work, and before flying off I kept telling him to be “safe”! My instruction was answered with, “am I usually not safe, Alana?” I am not usually a worrier but for some reason I was a little nervous about him leaving (it’s usually me leaving him for weeks). After telling him to be safe a couple more times, I took it to the next level and told him (jokingly and for a reaction) “maybe, don’t go in the ocean, just to be safe.”

This has now become a family saying that can be applied to any “harmful” encounter like driving on bad roads, walking across the street, petting a puppy. Maybe don’t do these things…just to be safe.

Of course Rhys never listened to me and did go in the ocean in Jamaica. That guy.
