I hardly change my mind about the plans I make, but a few weeks ago I had to put off going water skiing for the very first time. Among the few friends I have, most of them know how to water ski except me. So a couple of weeks ago I had set up a rendezvous with some of my friends to teach me how to water ski.
However, it wasn't to be because on the very day we had planned to go out, it suddenly started raining cats and dogs. We had no choice but to postpone the event. My friends, who are experts at water skiing, explained to me that with heavy rain, doing the exercise would be dangerous and risky because the flow of the river would be too strong and violent for a beginner like me.
Instead of going water skiing, we quickly and unanimously devised a new plan to go watch a newly released movie that was making the rounds. Though, I’m not a movie fanatic, I had no choice but to accompany my mates to the movie. In the end, I found the movie to be quite interesting and watching it through to the end made me forget about my earlier disappointment of not going to water ski.
Of course the change of plan was disappointing to me because I was too excited about the prospects of learning water skiing and had prepared for it for the whole week. As they say, disappointment is a blessing in disguise. I think this is true because I really enjoyed the new movie that I watched on that day and since then, I have developed an interest in watching films. So, this is a time when I had to change my plans for reasons beyond my control.
