Expectations

May 22, 2016


Lunch and snacks are prepared. Fleeces lay on the couch ready to be worn. The car is gassed up. Sunhats and sunscreen are at the ready. Beanies also. It is the Bay Area, after all, and microclimates demand preparation. Alarms are set and everyone is early to bed. 

But the night is a difficult one. 

We can’t go the beach today. 

Why?

Oh, ok. 

Surprisingly, he doesn’t care. I’m more disappointed than he. Who’s behaving like the child now?

      I agree. I suppose less optimistic people have less of a let down. I’d choose optimism. Thanks for commenting!

    Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone. ~Jim Fiebig
