Some things you cannot anticipate

Was waiting for some movers yesterday afternoon.

They were late.

Eventually the guy in charge of the business called and explained. The crew he had planned to send to help us got delayed because another customer had a heart attack while they were at his place.

Re: How to conduct your life

When driving somewhere that involves a specific arrival time, do you leave early enough to allow for fixing a flat tire (and still getting there on time) or do you believe that it's crazy to operate like that?

Not-so brilliant long-range planning

When I was in high school, not all that far from the border with Quebec, I had to choose a foreign language elective.

I selected French. Made sense, right? We lived way closer to Montreal than to Boston, after all.

So naturally, not all that many years later, I found myself living and working in places such as El Paso and Tucson. Not a lot of call for French there.

But knowing a little Spanish might have been nice.

How about you? Ever wish you had a do-over on a seemingly casual decision along those lines?
