If you ask any of my friends, they will tell you that I am a creature of habit – I have the same routine most mornings – leave for work within about the same 10 min window; stop for coffee at the same place (I mean, seriously, Wawa coffee is the bomb) and so on and so on. In fact, at times, I can be rather superstitious with my routine, because there have been days that I have deviated and all manner of things have gone wrong (like several years ago, Starbucks was closed in the morning, so no coffee for me – I was side-swiped by another car at an intersection and ended up giving my Itouch a bath – which meant having to replace it down the road) – now I know that it wasn’t due solely to the not having coffee in the am – but you have to wonder 😉
Anyways, you are probably wondering why I’m blathering about routines and coffee etc right now – because my routine this am was totally bungled (thank you DC morning traffic). When driving in to work, I merge onto a state highway and have to cross 4 lanes in about 1/2 a mile in order to get over for a) coffee and b) be in the right lane to get to work – but this morning, I wasn’t able to get over, thanks to some idiot who did the whole slow down/speed up routine to stop me from getting over…le sigh! Thankfully, nothing bad happened on the way into work, I had a killer omelette from the cafeteria downstairs for breakfast and its Friday! So here’s hoping it stays an awesome day!
How about you guys – are you creatures of routine, or fly by the seat of your pants types?
