This shot goes back a couple of weeks during my outing to Kensington Market. Today was the start of pedestrian Sundays for the season, where once a month they close down the streets to vehicular traffic and let the people and cyclists roam free. It’s always a terrific adventure during these days. I was too busy today trying to get all my ducks in a row for the upcoming workweek to go. Would have loved to check it out.
There was also a big photography equipment show downtown that I really wanted to visit, but again, duty calls.
I was suppose to photograph my friend’s little girls at their ballet recital, but it hinged on me getting my chores done in time, which unfortunately didn’t happen. I really have to start being far far more firm when I tell people NO to Sunday events. I’d told her I couldn’t do it but she was insistent to the point where I felt pressured to say yes. It was one of those things where you are doomed it you do and doomed it you don’t. And what it all boils down to, sadly, is my inability to be dishonest. Most people would simply make up an iron-clad, impossible to debate excuse to avoid hurt feelings, but I just tend to be honest and assume my honesty will be respected and appreciated. It rarely is. And every freakin’ time it bites me in the ass. From now on, I am going to LIE to get out of stuff I can’t do, when I think the truth won’t work. I’ve been screwed over by being honest more often than not over the past few months. I never thought I’d live to see the day where lying trumps honesty, but here we are. Oh well, life goes on.
