Decide to try a completely new recipe for an exotic pie you see on a flyer in the produce section.
Find someone who works there and get them to help you.
Don’t worry about it because you know you’ll find a substitute at home and the pie will still taste great.

Wait for your guest to arrive so you can decide what to do together.
Put your name on the wait list because you’re sure that these wait times are never as long as they say they are. You’re confident you’ll be seated soon.
Notice it’s a beautiful day out and go to the sandwich shop next door to order a picnic lunch to eat in a nearby park.
