There’s something I tend to do with an upcoming social situation. I analyze it and know exactly what it’s going to be like and how it will turn out. In reality, when I get to the place where this story has already played itself out in my mind’s home theater, I’m surprised right off the bat that it looks different. What is this place?

It reminds me of always trying to reduce things to simplest form. That usually works in math. But in Life, I bet 1/17, 3/51, 10/170, & 3266/55522 are all uniquely different experiences.
