An ex once told me that before every vacation he packs only one set of clothes. Being a chronic over-packer, with five sets of clothes for a two-day trip “just in case”, I found that completely absurd.
What if it’s sunny? What if it’s cold? What if this vacation was supposed to be your break from the rain, only to find that you “brought the rain with you?”
His justification: If his suitcase was only half-full, he could pick up his entire wardrobe for the following year. The concept took some getting used to. Who ever heard of an entire wardrobe fitting in a suitcase?
