Dammit, why didn’t I think of that? It’s so obvious. Take charge of your own destiny, be proactive. Don’t wait for luck to come calling, chase it down. Of course! I feel totally empowered. Just imagine the possibilities.
Okay, um, thanks for the suggestion. I’ll go wait at the bus station.*

* In the interest of full-disclosure, this is a reblog. I’m not trying to pass it off as current or even timely. It was originally published in 2015 — a year and a half ago — but I thought it was funny then. So it qualified for a repeat appearance. Besides, I’m in the midst of hauling and schlepping and this was a nice, lightweight distraction.
