Just that lousy taco truck up in the distance. I have a plan for what I eat and I have a plan for when I eat it.
That truck is not in my plan.
We’ve been driving for hours.
I’m hungry and cranky.
There might not be another option.
I could starve before I find somewhere that fits my plan.
I want to pitch a fit and eat a bunch of tacos.
It’s just tortillas, meat, and veggies. What’s so wrong with that?
My lizard brain should have been a litigator. She’s so good at negotiating for her point of view. No wonder she has kept me alive. Yet, I have bigger plans for myself. Plans that feel 𝕒𝕨𝕖𝕤𝕠𝕞𝕖.
