When we were in Hawaii last year, my wife (who accumulates musical instruments… somehow) came this close to acquiring a new ukulele to be lost with the rest of her luggage on the flight back. Those suckers are surprisingly expensive. As is just about everything else in Hawaii that isn’t a pineapple, of course, but I suspect that they’d have been expensive in Topeka, too.
