Linda left us with the following prompt:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “choices.” Base your post on the subject of making small, uneventful choices. Enjoy!
This got me to wondering, is there any such thing as a small, uneventful choice? I understand it’s something like picking out your clothes or where and what you’ll have for dinner, but are those necessarily "small" and "uneventful"? I would sometimes make choices that at the time seemed like they were small and uneventful, and end up with them being anything but. I’ve shared some of those stories here, so read them if you’re interested. Or not. Your choice. Maybe this would be more to your liking.
Let’s play a "f’rinstance" here with the choice of where and what to have for dinner. Pick the wrong restaurant, or the wrong dish, and you could end up in the hospital having your stomach pumped. Or let’s say you choose to leave for work a little sooner or a little later, and meet a very attractive person with whom you start a long, loving relationship. Or maybe you get held up. Or you choose that one pair of pants whose seams are about to go and end up having to stop at a store on your way to work to buy a new pair because the pants split. And while you’re there you decide to buy a new sport jacket and tie, and because you came in looking really spiffy your boss decides to promote you.
This is fun, ain’t it?
I want to take a minute to thank Linda Hill for the great time we had last month, and for hosting Stream of Consciousness Saturday each week. Now this word about the Wilson Autograph Series wood tennis racquets. At Wilson, we’re not Number 1 for nothing.
