You Know What They Say When You ASSUME Something…

You make an ASS out of U and ME… 

 

I hadn’t heard that until I joined the Reserves.  Then I seemed to hear it all the time… until it just became white noise.  And even now I only throw it in the title more tongue-in-cheek than anything else.  But in a way… it’s still very true.

I awoke this morning in a pretty good mood.  I had read something that gave me a tiny glimmer  of hope that perhaps a breakthrough was possible.  Throughout the day my thoughts continued to revolve around what was going to happen when I got into work tonight.

“Take it slow… stick to the plan…” I kept telling myself.

After I sat down at my desk it didn’t take long to discover that I had completely fooled myself by reading what I wanted to read into those words, and allowing them to take me on a journey of pure fantasy.  Because that’s what I do.  I dream.  And more often than not, my dreams are just that… dreams.  Stupid little fantasies that knock me off-course.

I’m an idiot.

Stick to the plan, Stephen… Stick to the plan…
