The weather was already miserable again, and so being outside was not possible. I had begun slacking on planning activities in advance, and now it was Tuesday, the very busy days of the week for me. I was a bit concerned about what I would do for my 39th Day of New. I had already decided to complete this experiment at 40 days, and so 39 was too close to the end to fail.
Then I noticed this Mexican Grille across the street from me. I was a bit stunned that I had never seen it there before, to be honest. I walked in and it was a pretty small place. I got a big steak burrito, and the owner talked to me a little bit. He said they weren’t usually open on Tuesdays. That explains why I never noticed it, the place is usually only open on weekends.Then I realized that it was connected to the very loud Latin American Dance Restaurant next door. I have walked by that place several times on Saturday nights to see that it is always packed.
I ate my burrito as the owner told me about the restaurant next door. Apparently they have free lessons with your dinner to learn some Latin American dancing. I considered what a great idea it would be if I wasn’t already so close to being done with Days of New, and then realized there is no reason to let the end of this project stop me from exploring more of the world around me. This got me thinking more about how to continue the spirit of this experiment after the 40th day has passed.
