I am a strategic planner and have been that way for quite some time. If ever I have plans to go anywhere, I think about it nonstop and how I’m going to implement it. For instance, if I have to be anywhere at a certain time, I stress about getting there until that time. I am probably no fun to be around if I’m running at all late. My anxiety turns me into another, much more irritable person.
Anyway, last night we had these plans to see a university production of Chicago. Our friend was playing Amos and he had sent us invitations via email. I guess I didn’t read them close enough because it was a preview show, meaning that seating went on a first come first serve basis.
The musical started at 7:30 and K had a class until 6:45. He rushed home and picked me up and then we left immediately. We got there around 10 after 7 and the line to get in was already winding around the foyer. I should’ve known that it would’ve been packed, but alas I am naive in this way.
I told myself the entire day that it was something we were doing at our leisure and that we didn’t have to rush or even worry about getting there. Even though we should’ve probably been concerned about getting a seat, my thought process stopped me from being worried. I’m glad I didn’t think about it. Otherwise I would have stressed about going to the musical all day.
I feel bad for our friend. I’m sure he was looking forward to having us in the audience, but we tried our best and couldn’t do anything about it.
K and I came home, ate dinner and watched a movie. It turned out to be a lovely evening anyway 🙂
Thanks for reading.
