I’ve been needing to get my fingerprints done (don’t ask). At the Department of Public Safety, waaaay across town. I finally got all the paper work done and then carefully put it all in a manila folder. I labeled the folder so it wouldn’t get lost. I even double checked to see that it was all correct (Yea me!).
I made a commitment to get the prints done today. I did piddle around a while and time was slipping away, but I picked up the folder and set out. I drove waaaay across town and didn’t even get lost once.
We Screw Up
When I got to the Department of Public Safety, I picked up the manila folder and started to get out of the car. That’s when I noticed that it was the wrong manila folder.
I drove back home without incident. Maybe I should wait until tomorrow to go back and not do all that driving back to back? But that sounds suspiciously like procrastinating. And I’d rather get it done.
Sometimes We Do Good
So I drove back. Did I mention that it’s waaaay across town? Everything went smoothly. It was a good feeling to cross this off my to do list. It had been on there for a while.
Not Everything Is Our Fault
On the way back, along the same route, I got stuck in the wrong lane. I had to make a slight detour. No big deal. Then a guy in a big black SUV decided to cross in front of me. I stayed calm, did not curse, and made no hand gestures. I just slowed to let him cross. Instead, he decided to stop in the middle of the road. I slammed on the brakes. Another car was coming toward him from the other side. It could have been very interesting. But we stopped and he went on. Okay, I did make a hand gesture then but not the one you’re thinking of.
We Can Try To Keep A Positive Attitude
When I got home, I said to myself, “I deserve a drink.” But this is the week my wife is gone and I’m not drinking (See post 649). Then I said to myself, “Well, at least I can get a post out of it.”
Optomistic Thought O the Day:
Something good comes out of everything.
Bonus Link O the Day:
Natural selection at work – so why are there so many of us still around?
(This is similar to the link that I lost. Still can’t find that one. )
A Heads Up:
The next post is a report on how I did while my wife was gone. Just in case you’ve been wondering.
