Have you ever ended up somewhere unexpected and wondered how that happened? I’ve done that on occasion. One time, instead of turning to take the road to school, I ended up halfway up the bypass and realized my mistake only when I started to take the ramp into town. Another time, I planned to go to the bank, but instead zoomed right on by.
Yesterday afternoon, I was out running errands and needed to run by CVS. I’d already stopped by the bank and been to the grocery store. I had accomplished a lot, but still had a lot to do and the afternoon was slipping away.
The CVS in my town is located on the street where most of our fast food restaurants and a couple of gas stations are located. CVS sits beside Arby’s and the two places are connected by a short “road”. When you turn onto this road, you can go right to Arby’s or left to CVS. Normally, this is not a problem because I don’t go to Arby’s all that often. However, yesterday, I had turned right and was almost at the drive-thru speaker when I realized my mistake. I pulled out of the line and headed over to the correct drive-thru:)
Sitting in line, waiting for my turn, I had to laugh at myself. I wondered if my brain was trying to give me a subliminal message that maybe I needed (or wanted) a roast beef sandwich and some mozzarella sticks. Maybe I should have paid attention to that subliminal message and stayed in the Arby’s line. A roast beef sandwich and mozzarella sticks would have hit the spot!
