Yesterday was painful for me!I was talking to some chics and they told me how they were making a quick dash to Walmart so as to buy stuff to make spanish omelette and samosas for a function.Since my fridge was empty I decided to tag along and get a few things.
So we check in and I pick the basics that I needed eg cereal,rice,heineken,apple juice etc.That took me less that half and hour.Do you know it took these chics almost 2 hours to get those things, I mean if it was a buffet being planned I would still be there now!What happened to in and out?Yes, I sound like a typical miroo at heart but that is how I am.
But it got me to thinking about my life.I think that orderliness and logic at some point are over prevelant in my life but unfortunately they havent fully extended to the state my bedroom.Most of the time before I do anything I think 2-3 steps ahead.When I do something most of the time I have weighed the consequences, if I can deal with them and how I can deal with them.I am not Mr Perfect but many times when something comes up I have plan A - C.There are times I have not wanted to do things especially those involving other ppl coz of a lack of plan B.It took me time to learn how to listen to people tell me their problems without chipping in with a solution.But thank God I am not alone, I was chatting to an old workmate/pal who is in the U.K and she tells me she has the same problem.Sometimes I wish for excitement and unpredictability in my life but at times it also comes with more problems then it is worth.We came to the conclusion that as long as the schedule is bearing fruit there is no need to fix what isnt broken.All I need to do is to spice up my life once in a while do something different, so on Monday I will cross at the first red light instead of the second!On a serious note I think that is why I am looking forward to Thanksgiving in ATL a change is in order.
