When this entry is posted, I should be on my way to Oslo, for my job. Â I bought train tickets online on Monday, and fetched them at the railway station yesterday. Â All is in readiness, for casual values of readiness.
Based on the past, however, I will probably not be on that train. Â Something will have happened to keep me from going. Â Most likely I got sick during the night or in the morning. But I may also have overslept despite having both my clock radio and mobile phone set to 4AM. Â The taxi that should take me to the train station did not find my address, or the road was blocked for some reason. Â I read the wrong time on the ticket, despite reading it 10 times. Â I forgot the tickets. Â I have no idea what, but for the last couple years or more I have been virtually unable Â to travel any long distance.
And I used to enjoy traveling with train, too. Â Oh well. Â Let us see what happens this time.
