Funny Thing On The Way To School

While I was standing at the bus stop waiting for the next bus (I transfer downtown), I saw a rather funny (as in "isn't that the way" funny) thing happening on the sidewalk on the other side of the street. A woman was struggling along through the snow that fell last night (not a huge amount, but enough to make walking harder than usual), and not ten feet behind her was a sidewalk plow, plowing the sidewalk slowly so as not to run her over. Had she noticed and stepped aside, the rest of her walk would have been much easier and faster. However, she didn't notice.

Isn't that the way. Not ten seconds after you do something, something happens that would have made the whole thing easier.

Oh I have an incredibly long history of doing things the hard way the first time out! When often times if I had taken the time to learn a little more, dig a little deeper, or look around a bit more - it could have been easier.
