Sadly not. Actually I can't say that I've ever been a really spontaneous person, even when I didn't have three kids, a dog and a husband. I didn't take a gap year because I knew deep down I would roam the planet till I was 35, then face the reality that I was qualified to do nothing whatsoever to earn my keep and end up doing a degree with 20 year olds. No thanks.
So, at 6pm on the evening of the concert, I'm up to my eyeballs preparing dinner, listening to Little Guy's piano recital piece and trying to stop the dog from mud-walking through the house, when my neighbour stops by. They suddenly have an extra ticket, so do I want it? "Come on - be spontaneous". Queenager is chanting "Do it, do it" behind me, which of course, since the Ball & Chain was watching man-child playing baseball, means that Little Guy and dog will wander the house till I get back.
Did I grab the bull by the horns? Did I throw caution to the wind. Did I seize the moment?
Of course not. I was wearing sweaty clothes; I wasn't showered; hadn't fed the kids, yada yada. Pah! It's all very well citing spontaneity but the reality is.......
