I, personally, LOVE being spontaneous. Unfortunately, my working life doesn't always allow it. I always think, I shouldn't do that, I'll be so tired in the morning! I remember talking with K and T when I was still in college about how hard it is to find spontaneous people. It doesn't have to be anything huge...maybe it was just showing up for dinner, when you know the invitation is always open (or the menu by the stove said mini meatloafs were coming...haha) Or it could be randomly driving a few hours for a shopping trip. The more responsibility, the harder it is to be spontaneous.
Last night, we were sitting at Woodstocks pizza after church and it was about 9:15 pm. We decided we really wanted dessert. Of course, NOTHING in Santa Cruz is open at that late late hour *shakes head* So we think, hmmm San Jose = Cheescake Factory, Bakers Square or Bjs. We choose Bjs because of its closeness and yummmmy Pizookie. So 4 of us headed over the hill for chocolatey goodness. It was SO much fun and SO worth it. I was totally Breaking Out, because I knew I'd be exhausted in the morning, but as a wise man once said....Blow it off! There were many laughs that we are still laughing about today. I think they got annoyed at me saying how awesome they were for being spontaneous...but how rare it is! Thank you to you 3 who made my Sunday awesome! I'm pretty sure our night reflected definition #3 of spontaneous...haha
When was the last time you did something spontaneous?
