Lesson learned

Don't procrastinate!
Yesterday, when the weather couldn't have been any better, my friends and me made the plan to go swimming in a lake nearby today because the weather was supposed to be just great for the whole week-end (sunshine, 32°C). But the weather forecast couldn't have been more wrong.
Sheldon: More wrong? Wrong is an absolute state and not subject to degradation.
Stuart: Of course it is. It's a little wrong to say a tomato is a vegetable, it's very wrong to say it's a suspension bridge

As it turned out this morning it was cloudy and when we were sitting in the car, it started to rain. So we went to a café to wait until it cleared off. When we made it to the lake, it was freezing and it started to rain. Oh great, we thought and went to the car when it poured with rain like crazy... My roommate's brother told us on the phone that the weather was supposed to become even worse. But again, the new forecast was wrong. It stopped and sunshine came out as soon as we were back. So yeah, we went swimming after all.

But still, it made us promise to each other to be more spontaneous, instead of procrastinating. Of course that can be applied for more than only swimming... but that sure is a serious issue during this crappy summer ;)
