This is too good to waste. A friend of mine has her French cousin visiting for a few days. Nice, you would think. But then she gets presented in the mail with the cousin’s plans for the holiday.
Now this is not the usual “See a museum or two, drink some coffee, walk in a park, do something intellectual that requires contemplative frowning” that I come up with before a holiday. No sir, the French visitor has made a detailed plan, after consulting on-line sources and tourist guides. And this plan is detailed down to the level of deciding which bicycle stands he will pick up his free bike from, and when. And it includes such vital info as “have lunch”.
And he’s made it in Excel!!!
Oh this is great … fantastic … wait, let me pull myself together … Excel … oh god … deep breath …
So yes, he has a detailed Excel sheet showing exactly where he will go and what he he will be up to. For example, September 18 contains no less than 33 precisely planned movements, starting at 7 in the morning and continuing, no doubt, until midnight.
Note that there is no leeway whatsoever for accident, bad weather or spontaneity.
So good luck to the French visitor and I hope he gets to see every square cm of Stockholm in his frenetic 3 days, although he won’t remember or enjoy any of it.
Oh I just wish he had made a Power Point presentation out of it, then I would stop laughing–oh, let’s see–never.
