I was hungry and craving a burrito earlier. And when you’re craving a burrito, getting a burrito becomes your top priority. I grabbed my skateboard and had to make a choice. I could go left or right. The burrito place on the left was closer but more expensive. The burrito place on the right was farther away, but they had better burritos for a cheaper price. I decided to go to the right. I got there and was dismayed to see the line going out the door. I decided to suck it up and got in line. I was only waiting for a few minutes when I heard the cashier tell a customer that it would take at least twenty-five minutes until his food would be ready. I needed a burrito, but I’m not going to wait a half an hour to get one. I had to go to the other burrito place.
I skated back the other direction, passing my house and continuing on for a few more blocks. Luckily there wasn’t much of a line. I was able to order within a minute or two, and was out the door in less than five minutes. I skated back home with my well-deserved burrito. As I peeled back the foil and bit into it, I noticed the time. It had been roughly twenty-five minutes since I left one burrito place for the other. But all that extra skating was worth it because I didn’t have to wait. Waiting for a burrito is a waste of time. I regret nothing.
