Do you ever forget your punchline ? Your point? Why you wrote a whole paragraph? You’re telling a great story within several great stories and suddenly the next story sounds more interesting so you just go there. Without realizing you skipped the point.
So in Maroc -Bartering and Toilets I told the story of the gentleman making me wait while he went and got me a roll of toilet paper which totally surprised me and then he led me to the stall and I unlocked it. But I left out the kicker: there is a white American Standard toilet!
Well I doubt it was American Standard but it looks like the same damn thing! It was a very first world experience within a Third World experience. I was happy to be able to take advantage of it.
