Many good things happened while we were in Arizona. The rest of this paragraph, as you would suspect, given the topic sentence at its head, will be about some of those good things, with the exception of this sentence, which, as you have no doubt become aware, is mere editorial rambling that should never have made it out of my internal monologue.
