Death and Taxes

You know the idiom, which tonight was proven true again from personal experience. My parents sent to my wife and me our Christmas presents by mail. By boat, in fact. It hasn't arrived yet. What arrived, however, is a letter asking us to pay import taxes on what we would receive. Which I did. And it was done in less than five minutes, with ridiculously ease. So the saying is true.
