I am sort of thinking of ordering bacon tomorrow and sitting next to you...just to remind you of how close to being a bacon stealer you really are ;)

Between you and Squid, and the floor (where I invariably drop some of the magic cured meat) I actually portion out my bacon by thinking I only get one of four pieces...

By the way I kept reading to find the unreasonable things. I happen to be pushed over the edge by nearly all of these same things,except eating in amusement parks because our family has an addiction to poorly crafted greasy fried vegetables.

Hah! I don't think I've ever commented on your blog (I rarely do on any blog), but I have to cop to this one because you've described it to a T. This is me exactly:

It's why I'm so much worse when I'm tired: I don't have the mental energy for all that re-imagining. I often say in arguments (the relationship kind which I don't consider arguments but the other person remembers as terrible fights), "but I thought we were going to ..." or "it was supposed to ..." as I struggle in the moment to sort out my vision of how things are going to be. But if I consciously change my expectations, or choose not to let myself set any, then I'm remarkably adaptable.

minnie

yep. this is me too. I just want to be able to control and ENJOY the little things. like this huge chunk of chocolate covered toffee. i want to drink my glass of milk, eat this toffee in bed while reading my book. i do not want to share a piece or a bite and i don not want any comments on how drinking this huge glass of milk will amke me get up to pee 47 times tonight. kthxbai.

I am not a fan of pre-expedition dawdling either. I'm actually kind of military in this way--go, go, go! Get the backpack, get your sunglasses, is there sunscreen? if a last minute trip. If a planned outing, yes, done the night before to maximize time. With four kids, my sister's family can rarely get out before noon, which makes me hyperventilate because I want more time out in the mountains.

Bacon stealers, well, that's unthinkable. Just not right. Unless I am doing the stealing, which I would strongly think about but wouldn't.

I also have my pickles and olives obsession. The lunch is right--don't touch!

Adina

Oy. I am satan in this cosmology. Food is for sharing. If there is a nontrivial amount of food, it is assumed to be for everyone. Rest days are for resting, and rushing to leave for an otherwise leisured expedition is overkill.

Humans are different. So odd that neurons connect in such different ways.

tnkgrl

Yeah, I'm with Adina on this one - I'll share my food if you ask, but I'm not rushing on my day off even if we're trying to go somewhere.

For things that don't matter to me too much, I avoid having expectations in the first place, thus avoid being disappointed...

People are mostly unreliable, so I plan for it :)

For things that really matter to me, I just take matters in my own hands - if I want things done a certain way I just do it myself!

Of course the drawback with this approach is that it doesn't build trust between people.
