Instead, I'm going to have some Trader Joe's cranberry instant oatmeal. While tasty, it's not quite what I want. And even if I did manage to get together a crew to go out for Italian for lunch, it would actually be a terrible idea. Because I'd just want to nap through the rest of the day.
Oh well. As life lessons go, this particular brand of "you can't always get what you want" is pretty mild. I'll live.
