Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
Yesterday my wife asked me to go with her and the daughter to go out for some quick shopping and a bite. I don’t see my daughter as much now that she is an adult so I jumped at it. Since we were going to stop for something to eat I skipped lunch (first mistake). I foolishly forgot that when they shop it is easily a couple hours in each store. They would go in while I sat in the freezing car listening to NPR and writing on my iPhone with my wireless keyboard.
Finally around seven we got to dinner and I was very hungry. Unfortunately we had taken my wife’s car so I didn’t have my iPhone charger. Just as we entered the restaurant, the Tomo Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, I realized my battery had just died on my phone. Without my phone I couldn’t access calorie info and felt naked. I ordered the sesame chicken which came with a small salad and miso soup. It tasted great and even though I felt a little guilty I didn’t go nuts.
I put an extra charger in the wife’s car and shouldn’t have that problem again.
