So we’re driving around looking for this restaurant that is supposed to be really great according to the reviews, but the directions aren’t clear and the roads are confusing since we aren’t familiar with the area. It doesn’t help that it’s raining either. Right when we’re giving up and about to head home, one of my passengers shouts “There it is!” We go from anticipation to frustration to excitement at finding the place at last. We go in and eat and the food is….okay. Life’s a lot like that. Every time we expect something, we often get less than we expected.
