Like unsuspectingly stepping on the lone banana skin on the pavement as if a matter of destiny.
Like the penchant among taps to run dry, a phenomenon preceded by a humiliating gurgling sound, just after you have worked up an admirably rich lather all over your face.

A friend in need can be a spouse indeed!
