Driving into Sentosa

I had to go into our wonderful little resort island of Sentosa yesterday for a friend’s wedding, but didn’t have the complimentary entry pass with me (left it with the wife, who was coming later). As we approached the gantry, I was getting ready to pay the entrance fee to get on the island, when the taxi driver turned around and told me not to worry: he would save me the $2.

I was just wondering how he was intending to do that when he slowed down for the gantry, wound down the window, pointed at me, and said one word: “Golf!”.

Right. Golf. Me in my new dress shirt, tie, and best suit (which I hadn’t worn since my own wedding 5 years ago).

They waved us through.

This, I have to remember for next time. Maybe in a few years, I’ll just have to shout “gambling!” and they’ll let me through again.
