30 Days of Thanks...Day 16

Day 16:  I am thankful for still having the ability to catch even those who think they know me off guard.

They say most Virgos are creatures of habit.  For the most part, that seems to fit me.  Every once in a while, I think it’s good to mix things up.  I think that aspect is quite appealing. 

Even those who have known me for years. 

A situation which puts a smile on my face was when I got back from the gym.  My normal routine is first deciding whether I’m going to soak or not.  If I don’t soak, then I debate between showering right then or waiting until early in the morning.  Then I take my nightly dosage of medication before retiring for the evening.

Well, SOS was sitting back, playing Black Ops II, in the bedroom.  He always prides himself on the ability to multitask, so I decided to put him to the test.  I decided to play my own game of “Maneuver the Joystick.”  

Let’s just say he wasn't nearly as good as multitasking as he originally thought.

So after that initial surprise, I retired for the evening.  I woke up like I normally would to come to the day job and decided to surprise him some more.  Guess it shows if you want something bad enough, even if you aren't a morning person, you will rise to the occasion.

The moral of the tale: Keep him guessing.

I'm not a Virgo, I'm an Aquarius. But anyone who really knows me, knows that I am most definitely a creature of habit.
