I had this egg roll and sandwich conversation with my friends. I asked them if they have ever had an experience of thinking of doing A, but ending up doing B. For example, you think you want to have a sandwich, but you end up waiting in line for an egg roll. They had different answers. One friend said once she wanted to have an egg roll, but ended up getting a sandwich while still thinking about an egg roll. Another friend said, she had the experience of getting a sandwich when she cannot go to the egg roll shop which she intended to go because of the traffic. It’s interesting for me to see how one’s character determines the outcome when everyone is given the same situation.
But most of all, a person will never know what it is that she wants unless she actually tries to get it.
