Some of the best moments of my life happened precisely because I didn’t have a plan…or because the original plan didn’t go as planned. Last fall I went to London…and sure, that took some planning. I even planned to go to Paris but, thank God, that didn’t go as planned! Before the trip, Deputy Pepper (a veteran of London sightseeing) and I sat in my cubicle poring over his London guidebook and I planned out all the places that I wanted to see. And I managed to see most of them. The last day that I was there, I made an unplanned second trip to the Tower of London (gift shop). I had to make a return trip because I had broken the collectible mugs (definitely unplanned!) that I had purchased the first time I was there. After that was accomplished, I crossed Tower Bridge and then I walked along the Thames where I hadn’t planned on accosting a random guy to take my picture, but I did and it’s now one of my favorite pictures of me in front of a bridge that there is.
|Me and bridges. Go figure.|
