It was time for Tom’s daily trek to The Caffeine Pharmacy Coffee House. Waiting in line for his favourite brew, he couldn’t help overhear the conversation beside him.
“This day’s been crazy, but everything’s happened on schedule,” said the first person.
“You schedule crazy?” asked the second.
“Better to plan for it than have it take over your life,” said the first.
“It depends on how you understand it,” said the second.
“What?” asked the first.
“The kind of crazy you’re talking about,” said the second.
“Wouldn’t you rather manage crazy?” asked the first.
“I don’t think it’s possible,” answered the second.
“Why wouldn’t it be?” asked the first.
“Crazy is like chaos. By their very definitions they’re beyond control, aren’t they?” replied the second.
“Not if you do it right,” said the first.
At that moment, a middle aged man wearing pink bunny ears walked up and kissed the second person on the forehead.
Tom watched as the first person smiled and said, “Right on schedule.”
