If you want to make God laugh, tell Him about YOUR plans.
This is one of my favorite quotes. I was sure I'd found it in Bird by Bird but I just flipped through the thing and can't find it. Of course, I recall Anne Lamott as saying "tell Her about your plans" but the idea is the same!
As it turns out, from my extensive online search, this quote is attributed to Woody Allen. That sounds right. (Ms. Lamott quotes lots of other people in her book).
I repeat this quote to someone at least once a week. This being an especially odd week for some reason, I thought I'd share it with many of you at once.
