Drabble: The Plan That Didn’t Last Past Breakfast

Written in response to the prompt rearrange.

Genre: slice of life


~The Plan That Didn’t Last Past Breakfast~

She started her day with a plan. Finish her assignment before lunch (get that eyesore out of the way first), meet a friend for coffee after lunch, then get started on some research for her next assignment until dinner and unwind afterwards with a few episodes.

It didn’t even last past breakfast.

During breakfast, she discovered they would have last minute visitors for lunch. So, instead of vacuuming the next day as she first planned, she moved it forward to after breakfast instead and pushed the assignment to later.

She managed to make the floor spotless before the guests arrived. Her family played host to the visiting family and it wasn’t until they left a few hours later that she returned to her room. There she found a message on her phone from her friend who wanted to cancel the meetup due to illness. Together they arranged another time to meet, and by the time that was done, she wasn’t in the mood to touch the irritatingly confusing assignment.

There was a very good reason why she originally planned to do that first.

The assignment wasn’t due yet. She could push it to tomorrow. With her plan for the day torn to shreds, she ditched the whole thing and kicked back to do nothing productive for the rest of the day.



This is for everyone who has ever watched their plans fall apart because life happens. You’re not alone.
