When you said the job we had scheduled next week
was to be cancelled,
I was disappointed, of course,
but far more,
I was relieved
because I was unprepared.
I had not done the necessary research
so did not know the accurate terms
to do the assignment properly.
Had we gone to the job site
it is very possible
I would have botched the project entirely.
Certainly, there are days before the job
and I could have gotten ready.
I could have found time to prepare
and suited up for the work at hand.
I could have become the man for the job
and all could have been well
but really, this is the preferable solution
the elegant, easy way out.
Thanks for the cancellation.
Makes my life much better.
