It was a day of aborted plans. Clearly, she was meant to go with the flow, whatever that was going to be. Her natural tendency to make lists and plan things, as a way of successfully navigating life (working full time while doing full time grad school; a train commute 2 hours one way to work; a long distance relationship, whatever) was sometimes derailed by life events. She had only recently learned to (somewhat) graciously give herself over to events when this happened. Life has its own plans and schedule, and can be most insistent on getting its own way.
