The Family Jewels
After many hours in midtown Manhattan, Leah is having a coffee when she suddenly realizes that her diamond necklace is missing. She loves that necklace so much and immediately phones her husband Jacob. "Oy Vey, Jacob, I've lost my diamond necklace and I'm just about to start re-visiting the shops I went to earlier. So I'm going to be home a little later than normal. But don't worry about me."
"OK," says Jacob, "best of luck."
Leah then starts re-visiting all the shops she had been to earlier, but no one had seen her necklace. So feeling devastated, Leah makes a sudden decision. She would buy another diamond necklace right now from her favorite jewelers, even though they were some distance away. She starts walking to the nearest subway station.
Very much later than expected, Leah arrives back home. Jacob immediately gives her a hug and says, "I've been so worried about you. Where have you been all this time?"
"I couldn't find my necklace, so I decided to buy myself a new one at Tiffany’s."
"I can't believe you would do this to me," says Jacob. "Knowing how much I worry about you, you suddenly decide to buy a new diamond necklace without my help and advice? And not only that - from an expensive store like Tiffany’s?!"
"I'm really sorry," she says to Jacob, "but for me, losing jewelry is just like someone falling off a horse. If they don't immediately get back on the horse, they may never ride a horse again!"
