23. Preparation v. Desperation
Brat Boy sat on the other side of me on the couch. I asked him if he had everything ready for school tomorrow.
He said, “No – thought I wait ‘til the bus is coming up the street to find my basketball uniform. Then I plan to look for my lunch as the school bus rolls past. That way I get to hear you mutter as you drive me to school. About halfway there, I plan to remember I forgot something. That’s when the real desperation will set in.”
“Or, wise guy,” I said, “You could round up everything you need tonight. Use a little preparation to avoid a lot of desperation.”
“Where’s the fun and challenge in that?”
Today I will use a little preparation to avoid a lot of desperation.
