Unexpected Redemption


On this rain soaked, missed bus, unmotivated student kind of day the need for a Perfect Moment is keenly apparent. The whole purpose of the Perfect Moment is to rescue this rather blah day from itself.

On the other hand, I could just let it go. I could write the day off and never look back.  I could forget about it and go to bed.  I could wake up tomorrow and start fresh.

The thing is, what if that happened tomorrow too. Soon, there could be a string of those days and that is definitely not something I want.  I need to break the string here and now.

Thankfully, I arrived at work to find pizza leftover from some meetings that had been held. Could there be anything better than pizza when you weren’t expecting it?  Okay, maybe some beer to go along with that pizza…but that’s an event for another day.

    I’m good with just the pizza! And the answer to you question is “Nope, that’s about as good as it gets”!

    I am a pizza guy.

  2. You can have my pizza … but the beer, oh, bring in the beer! Craft only please. 🙂
