Have you ever travelled a long way with kids? Before the trip you carefully plan where you will stop for each bathroom break, snack stop, and gas fill-up. It never seems to work out. I would be more impressed by NASCAR drivers if they did it with a car load of kids. Give the kids lots of pop to drink and only 1 toy to fight over. Now drive your racecar.
Or how about this? Have you ever planned a big meal, for a large group of guests. Lets say, a 4 course meal, that requires everything to come out of the oven in stages. Never works for me. One hour between salad and soup is far too long a span. Better get out another bottle to keep 'em happy. Darn.
Guys, how about this. Your on a first date with a women that you really like. You're at the movies, getting ready to put your arm around her. You have it all planned. The mushy part of the movie is coming up. The whole emotional play could work for you. And then, she gets up to go to the bathroom.
The best laid plans. Hah! Nice try. We all think we have it figured out, but we don't.
This is my 1000th blog. 3 months ago, I had it planned where right on Dec. 31st, I would write my 1000th blog, and crest the 200K mark at the same time. Close but no cigar. Better luck next time.
Ah well. At least I can put my arm around my wife anytime that I want. Well, unless she won't let me.
