My wife and I were going to go out for dinner the other night. There was something specific we wanted at a specific restaurant. However, we were both very tired. There was something else we didn’t really want at another restaurant that happened to be right by us.
Right by us.
Our choice was simple. We could stop right by us and get the thing we didn’t really want or we could drive just a little bit further and get the other thing we actually wanted. We stopped right by us.
Did I mention we were tired?
It’s funny. There was something we actually wanted and we gave it up in favor of something that didn’t really interest us simply because the first restaurant was closer than the second. The vote was unanimous.
Sometimes proximity trumps everything else.
