Know how I´ve said that I´m a total change junkie and that I love change? Well, that´s only change I initiate, otherwise plans should stay exactly as made.
Of course that´s totally hypocritical of me, but that´s just how I operate.
I got a text message (on my new cell phone) from my Rompot saying that he has a work thing tonight and could I arrive tomorrow around noon instead?
My first reaction was: NO. Tonight or not at all, mister. Then I came back from my short trip to dramaville and decided that I would still go to Spain today, but I would stay the night in Zaragoza, and then go down to Tarragona in the morning.
In my quick phone conversation with the Rompot, he asked if that was okay. I told him the truth as I felt it at that moment, which was I was a bit disappointed. He asked. I replied honestly, but I didn´t explain the reason for the disappointment. Of course I don´t like not seeing him, but in the grand scheme of things I really couldn´t care about one day. The real disappointment came from him changes plans on me! I´m the plan changer. No one else.
Then, as usual when I´m being irrational, I laughed at myself and got over it. I´m spending the night in Zaragoza, a city I thought I´d just drive past. And I stopped for an hour in Huesca where I took some great photos.
So, all´s good.
- No matter how hard you try, you can´t control everything (especially other people).
- Always be ready to create alternate plans at a moment´s notice.
